I had resigned from my full time job at the fire department. I have many reasons, the primary reason was my family. We are fostering a seven year old girl and we need a better schedule. A twenty four hour shift every third day made planning for child care difficult for us.
I have been in the fire service since 1993. I started as a junior fire fighter with my home town volunteer department when I was a a senior in high school. I have had the priveledge to work with some great, intelligent people. I will miss serving on the fire department, making special team runs. I will miss the adrenaline rush of fighting a fire.
I am leaving behind some true friends that I will no longer be able to protect, as I promised their spouces.
I have been drawn to the medical field, my paramedic ticket proved to be one of the most influential experiences. I strive for more knowledge and I am looking forward to future college options in the medical field.
I have accepted a job with a local private ambulance service. I feel like a member of a team now and I look forward to providing the best service I can to my patients.
Thanks for all the years, I have a new journey to begin.
