    Default So you fight fire for free...what do you do for a living?

    Since a lot of us in this section are 100% volunteer, what do you do for a living? I'm a volunteer but I'm looking and working towards making a career out of firefighting. Currently I am working at a car lot, but I am probably going to go back to my old job because I don't have a lot of time to respond with the hours I work there.

    I'm the Director and Senior Editor at KEYC-TV (www.keyc.tv), the Region 200 TV station in Mankato, MN. I also have the occasional photoraphy gig (weddings, but not very often, I'm not cheap), and used to do a lot of mobile entertainment work.

    Work in insurance claims. So a few times I have fought the fire, gone to the car crash. Then I go back an look at it for the insurance companies...can be very interesting. Especially when I tell the insurance company I already know the circumstances, or address or owner!!
