I'm thinking of re-joining a Fire/EMS Company


Hell, It's about time!
I used to do volunteer EMS work when I lived in Maryland, and I've been interested in getting back into it here in Pennsylvania. Being a volunteer firefighter/EMS is the best feeling in the world. It's hard to explain... the only issue I have now is the lack of time due to family and my kids :-/ There is such an adrenaline rush whenever you are responding to a call... those who have done it know what I mean.

When I did it before it such a rewarding feeling knowing you just potentially saved someones life in the back of the ambulance. I was never really on the fireside, but we assisted with the firefighters and home occupants with smoke inhalation from house fires.

There is a fire station just 2 blocks from me and I was thinking about signing up there, problem is with a lot of them, you have to know somebody on the inside to get in.

I'm so split on the issue right now, I really don't know what to do...

I want to join one of these two:

That one is closer, but I don't know anyone there...

the second one is pretty far from me, but my wife has a friend who is a fire chief there and can get me in... That would be a haul for me though :-/
Pleasant Hall Volunteer Fire Company - Station 11
