    Default Just a kid asken' for some help....

    I feel kinda' like an *** usin' a forum for firefighters when I, myself, am not one, but I hope one day I can be. My name is Daniel Hunter. I'm a senior in an independent study class in Bruceville-Eddy Texas. In this class we have to do a year long study on a career that we're interested in pursuing. I've always loved firefighters. My grandfather was the fire chief in Houston for 20 some odd years. He was a hero. Just like Most, if not all, firefighters, and I always looked up to him. When the movie Backdraft came out, I watched it everyday for the longest time. I love that movie. Ladder 49 was very good as well. Needless to say, the career I'm studying is Firefighing. My Teacher requires us to have online mentors. They want us to get the E-mail addesses of people who are in the field that we are studying. All that would be asked of you is to reply to one e-mail a week. If you're interested you can post a reply on this forum with your e-mail address or email me at americanforeign22@yahoo.com. I would appreciate it very much if some of you would like to be my online mentors. Thanx very, very much.

    First off, forget almost everything you saw in "Backdraft"

    Seriously, I'd be glad to help, although I'm not a career firefighter. But maybe a volunteer's perspective would also be useful to you. I'm also an industrial firefighter in the chemical industry, so I could give you some insight there as well. Drop me a PM or e-mail .

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    Default Hey

    I'd be happy to help you out if you still need people. I haven't been a firefighter half as long as most of the people here, but I can give you a female's opinion of the Fire/EMS services and have worked for both paid and volunteer services. Drop me an email if you''d like help . Good luck!

    I'd be glad to help you out. I'm not as seasoned as a lot of these guys, but I would be more than willing to help you out. I have been working in EMS for a couple of years now, and am currently a senior in college with a fire science degree. Just drop me an email. Good luck!
