I'm not really new, but I just finally joined the memberzone, and I'm starting to post in the threads. I was an Army Medic for 6 years (92-98) and a volunteer FF for 5 years now. I was hired as a Part-time FF last year, and have been working on my ATA in firescience, anyhow, I'm working really hard to get hired right now, and hope to get the badge soon!
