    Hi.
    It is always good to hear of other female firefighters out there. I live in Central New York. I am a class A fire fighter and an EMT. There are many stories to tell and not all are pretty.
    What made you decide to become a FF? Are you paid or volunteer?

    Welcome to the fire service, I am head dispatcher and vol.ff (and the only female)for a rural community in Texas. I have been with the dept for 5 yrs. and I absolutely love it, even the 24hr shifts. Along with ff, we are first responders in our part of the county and Skywarn weather spotters. After being involved with the dept. for 4 yrs I went back to school to get my bachelors in Fire Investigation.
    Good luck and take care.

    Cool Welcome to the Front yard

    I started out as an explorer for a volunteer department in 1985. 17 years later I am a captain/paramedic for a full-time fire district here in the KC (missouri) metro area. Not every day is a good day, but even the bad ones aren't enough for me to do anythignelse in the world. The excitement of it all never changes. Whenever I say to myself, well I've now seen it all, God replies "Oh really!?" and the bells drop. If you ever want to chat drop me a line at truckie89@hotmail.com I love to tell war stories and all my firefighters are tired of all my old stories- LOL. If I have a regret it would have to be lost brothers. I have buried a friend or two over the years and that never gets easier. I always tell myslef that the last one was the LAST one,but I know it may not be. At least they died doing what they loved. Well, drop me a line and we'll chat. John aka "Irish"
