I spent 12 years as a volunteer firefighter in my town. Learned a lot and did a lot of interesting things in my time with our dept.

Thank you brother. It is a great job and I wish I could do it again with the same great people. How many on the job in Somerville?

Spent 15 years as a Volunteer & part time paid with a Licking County Ohio Dept. Our dept had a Scout Explorer Post, it was very rewarding to see the young explorers decide to make a career of the fire service. I would not trade the experience and the family relationships from my fire service I still enjoy. I think of the guys out west fighting the wild fires and how dedicated they are, God Bless them all!

Late to the discussion but I've been a firefighter with my city department over 20 years, currently a captain. I was also a firefighter with the Navy on several carriers for 4 years and volunteered many years as well in various towns. So my adult life has been serving in the fire industry. One of my proudest moments was when my youngest daughter became a career firefighter two years ago! She was also nominated her first year to be an elite member of the state honor guard...pretty proud dad!! And finally, my mom (serving as a volunteer EMT), and both of my grandfathers (serving as volunteer firefighters for over 50 years in their local town) have provided the legacy of this firefighting family.

I retired from a 32 year fire service career in 2005 with the rank of Captain/EMS Field Supervisor from Orange County, Fl Fire/Rescue. Twenty-six of those years I also served as a paramedic. What a ride it was..............
