Why are you a fire service volunteer?
I joined the fire department almost 22 years ago to give back to my community. I wanted to be part of a group that felt the same about their community.

What year did you join the fire or emergency services?

What are your memorable moments as a firefighter or EMS provider?
My most memorable moments are when we worked with a grade school to do Fire Safety Week with the kids.

What contributions have you (and your department) made in your community?
We, as a department, have continued to decline in numbers over the years. Even though there are only a handful of us that are available we continue to serve our community as best as we can.
