Female Firefighter Netcong Fire Company #1
Hi All. My name is Shannon and I am a firefighter with Netcong Fire Company #1 in NJ. I've been a firefighter for 4 years and really do enjoy it. We are a volunteer organization who relies solely on our membership to succeed. We run a lot of R.I.C Calls (Rapid Intervention Crew) to neighboring towns. For those of you who don't know what a RIC Team is, it is a team that is called to the scene of a fire in case a firefighter should go down while working. If a mayday is activated, so is the RIC Team. It is our job to locate and rescue the firefighter. We endure special training so that if we are ever called into action, we can do our job efficiently. Check out our 2013 Fire Video and get an idea of what kind of calls we see in my area. I have provided the link below. Please make sure it begins at 00:00.
Please introduce yourselves as I am new to the site.
