    Count me as another who wakes up just BEFORE it goes off. Once I woke up for some reason, looked at the pager, and it went off!

    Length of Service-21.5 years
    Why-I would say it's in the family
    What need-Geez, that's tough. I work for the police so I guess it lets me get positive feedback from helping the community.

    I think I can speek for most everyone when I say "FAMILY" is why we all do it.

    No matter if it is your "FAMILY" or my "FAMILY" or someone else's "FAMILY".
    The "FAMILY" created at your station, or the "FAMILY" shared by the brothers and sisters all over the world.

    It is all done for "FAMILY"!

    Why i volunteer: I like to help my community and it has been my dream to be a firefighter since i was a child. I have also been with socio-civic and radio-civic groups.

    What fills in me: the sense of pride and giving back to my community to service and assistance they need without any return or compensation.
