As a little kid I stood in the sink and watched my dad jog down to take the ambulance to a fire, wreck, or some neighbor’s home.
I realized that it was something he is and not just something he does. I wanted to be part of that, feel the camaraderie, give back to the community. It’s been 31 years since I joined and it is part of me. Now I teach the occasional CPR or EMT class and volunteer one night a week to staff the ambulance.
