I am a 35 year old volunteer firefighter from a rural department in SC. I am interested in learning from others around the world on how they do their job safety and give a persepctive from my standpoint from time to time. I have been a volunteer firefighter for 4 years. I did perform firefighting function in the Navy and was hooked on it from that point forward. I am also now working as a fire protection coordinator dealing with fire system testing and engineering at my day job. I look forward to being an active part of the forum.
