    I am about 3 hours North of Vancouver/Portland. Closer to Tacoma than Seattle, but kinda in the middle of the two. I do not know where Astoria is. I heard of Astoria (Kindergarten Cop, good movie). Looks like a very nice place. How are things down there?

    Hi Dave, It is real nice up here. Its about 80 degrees sunshining. Been alittle slow for calls but thats ok once in awhile. Besides Pacific is a small town, not to much excitement. How about Columbus, Ohio? What is that like? How is the weather? I was raised an East Coast Girl, but moved out west around 12.

    I am from upstate New York. Auburn it is about 20 minutes from Syracuse. How are things in South Carolina, Kyle and how are things in Wisconsin, Scott? Do the fire department on the east coast run EMS and Fire together? I have been told that some big cities only run fire and have seperate agencies handle EMS. At my department we cross man a Engine and an Aid car. So what ever is called is what you go on. Is that how you run it or do you have staffing for both?

    Hey Kelly, things are just steadily burning down in this city...which is just turning into one big ghetto ....anyways...the county runs EMS and F.D. runs first responder with all 11 stations with AED's..In my station, we have a Squad truck that handles all entrapments, ems fires pretty much on the whole south side of our city....we have just changed websights so everything is not all done yet
