Summer here is well.. Starting off really slow!! It is starting to warm up but the fire season has been poor at best. so far. I am hopeing it will improve as is warms up and the rains slow. Have a good one and stay warm.
I was a full time police officer but on I only work one shift a month to keep my certification, I really love being a firefighter but I never want to burn a bridge that I might work in again. The fire departments that are in my area and that I work for have paid reserve fire positions to cover sick time, vacations, and injuries; I know a lot of other departments that do not this. I feel really lucky that I can work in the winter, spring, and fall at the departments and fight wildland fires in the summer. I have wanted to fire the big fires in your neck of the woods one day but floating my truck on a raft is just out of the question, Ha Ha.
Take care and be safe out there
