John just got his FireFighter Cert.. moving him from Volunteer to Reserve.
Most of the calls we get up here are rescue and medical emergency calls for which the guys are first responders and ambulance drivers to get the patient to nearby hospitals. We do get our fair share of ATV / quad accident and vehicle roll overs.
The fires we get are mostly forest fires handled by the Forest Service (with the rare assistance from our community fire department).
John’s training was pretty daunting with all the book learning, memorization, and physical training. We’re glad he’s through it and back home where we can get back to working on other things.
