For some, it is a way to give back to their communities. For others, it is a way to move into a paid job in the fire or EMS field. Others see it as a way to make new friends and interact with a group of individuals who are motivated to come together to help one another. It is responding at all hours of the night and day to any number of emergencies. It can be the challenge of learning how to cut a car apart, gain access to a burning home or comfort a family member during their time of grief.
It is something you will never regret doing.
