I actually started at 16. Things were a little different back then (what is OSHA?). I rode as a reserve every weekend in high school and then at least 3 or 4 nights a week all through college. We were a moderately small town that had just opened a 3rd station, with sometimes as little as 9 full time on a shift and running a rescue squad -- it was quite interesting. When the squad was on an EMS call and they had a fire call, I would go up and take the Engine by myself and meet them there many times. We now have 4 engines, a truck company, heavy rescue, rope rescue, boats, mobile communication centers, HazMat squads, etc, etc. Been fun watching all the changes. We now have folks from the dept. on the Federal Tasks Force that went to the Pentagon on 9/11, they were on the ground at Katrina, and just about any other major hurricane or disaster since. I now am an asst chief administering the reserve program getting to see all the young skulls of mush turn into firefighters and then officers. They have to be 21 now so a much more mature group from when I joined. I could not be prouder of the work these folks do and intend on staying there as long as I can as it has influenced and shaped my life in a very positive way.

Wow Terry, that is awesome. I am a detachment chief. I work for our Department of National Defense. I taught high angle rescue for a few years, that I enjoyed the most. It has been a wonderful career. Hopefully retire in 2014 if all goes well, then the wife and I are going to cross the country. With the trailer then back home accross the States.
Thanks for telling your awesome story.
