  • New member from Michigan

    Hello Everyone! New member here. I wanted to write a introduction as my first post.

    A little bit about me

    New member of our local volunteer (part paid) fire department. I have been on for almost 1 year now. Im located in west Michigan (port sheldon township)

    We service a small township here on lake michigan.

    Our department is small, consisting of about 20 members. We do all fire/rescue and medical calls. We are a MFR/EMR license department. We have assistance on medicals with our local hospital or AMR/LIFE ems

    About me now, I am 32 years old, and been on our department for about 1 year now. I just finished my MFR/EMR class. Just passed my NREMT test (on the first try!!) on 1/6/20

    I recieved my state license and NREMT certificate in the mail yesterday (1/13/20)

    I am now enrolled in our county fire academy. I will be attending the 3rd class tonight.

    Anyway, I joined the forum because i wanted to get better ideas on how to be a better firefighter/mfr and get ideas for our F.D to use for fundraising and training.

    I consider myself very active in the F.D. I ran just about every call I was allowed (most were medical and i wasnt allowed to run them) Now that i have my license, i will be running just about every call we get while im in the area.

    I wash trucks on my own time, using my own materials. i attend just about every meeting/continuing education classes that we have

    I do all the misc stuff as well, like toys for tots, summer fest, fire preventions, 4th of july parades etc.....

    Anyway, I will be posting alot in the volunteer section and probationary section as that fits me perfect.

    Love to talk with other Michigan members if your here!!
