Hi, I'm Dan McCormick, retired from City of Berkeley Fire Department. In from 1962 to 1982, fell off roof and trashed my back and knees. Pensioned off before I had forty years in service.
I was an apparatus operator and EMT 1 (baby paramedic!). That title covered everyone who drove trucks, engines (me), rescue squad. (Old title was 'Engineer').
Yeah, I was there in the 'Radical Sixties' and it was an adventure, not just a job!
Need some Hazmat info... my wife was wondering about batteries in the electric cars. Are they hazardous in a fire? Looked on line but no info.
