Thank you for indulging me this year by clicking over here. It is a strange world I inhabit most days, and my reactions to it that I get on paper, or screen, can be a bit disturbing. Having read many of the previous years posts I came up with some of my better moments.
A career in Fire/EMS is difficult, physically demanding, heartbreaking and at times disturbing but ultimately rewarding. Those unexpected moments when you know without a doubt that you have just saved a life, or touched one in such a positive way that the person who called for help got much more than they ever expected makes all of the misery disappear.
I am fortunate to have experienced more of these moments than I deserve, and am better for it.
Happy New Year!
