Describe your job with the fire company. “I am a firefighter and now am able to go out on calls that only need the fire police. Now I can do more with the department.”
How do your loved ones feel about you putting your life in danger? “They are very supportive. My grandfather was a member of the Emmaus Fire Police several years ago. He was there for about 10-15 years and enjoyed it.”
Tell us a story you'll never forget about your firefighting experience. “I don’t have any stories to tell yet. I actually hope to move closer to the fire company and then I will be able to go on even more calls, with the possibility of some stories to tell.”
