    I've wanted to do this all my life, got the opportunity three years ago at age 16, and at age 19 I'm still a vollie at that department and a career firefighter at another.

    i went into training when i was 18, i would have done it sooner but my area doesnt have an explorer or cadet program. i am 20 now and on a volunteer dept. you may think that is no biggie, when when you are the youngets by 9 years and then the next step is prolly 20 or 30 years that is big. infact i believe i am the youngest in my county. after college i plan on testing out on firefighter 2 and even getting my first responder or EMT certification. i want to help people, and i feel good when i am doing it.

    I have wanted a career in the Fire Service since I was capable of understanding the Fire Service. Watching my Father and Grandfather do this had a big impression on me as a little hose-humper.

    I joined my post at 14 and look forward to four years this July. I have done what I can (taken classes, all the calls I can, drills, mtgs., talking and for lack of a better word be"familing" my brothers and sisters, et cetera).
