    Hello, my name is Andy, I just got on a combination paid/volunteer fire department near Madison, WI (Village of Maple Bluff) last month. This is my first department and also my first time to the forum here. I am certified firefighter II and will be taking my EMT-Basic course this summer. Look forward to having some good conversations with everyone. Have a great day!!!

    Just recently. Our fire department provides ambulance service as well. My sister is also an EMT in a different town. She has been an EMT for over a year now and talking to her about it helped to convince me.

    Thats really cool. I'm only 17 right now, but by the time I take the class I should be 18. I would love to work on aan ambluence for a few years (or however long I'm needed). I've known a few EMTs who are always talking about what they do, it sounds amazing to be able to help so many different people. You are amazing if you'll be a ff and an EMT. Thumbs up to you!

    Welcome to the gang Andy..I'm sure you'll love it as much as we all do
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Yes, I went through the MATC Firefighting Academy and am currently on the waiting list for the associate degree program. Have you already put in an application at the Bluff?
