Volunteer Spotlight: Joe Toole
What is your career?
I am a full time State of Florida Correctional Officer Sergeant, and I farm some also.
Why are you an NVFC member?
It is a great organization for information and training ideas for our very small rural all volunteer fire department.
Why are you a volunteer firefighter?
I help out because I enjoy helping my community, and I help because I many need help one day and hope someone will be willing to help me out.
How long have you been in the fire service?
What are your memorable moments as a firefighter or EMS provider?
Several moments, but I remember my first car crash that had fatalities and a large department store fire in a neighboring community that involved 15 fire departments and over 100 firefighters.
What contributions have you (and your department) made in your community?
I have helped my community stay safe for over 20+ years.
