Consider the challenge of helping people at all hours of the day or night, seven days a week, in any kind of weather and under very stressful and emotional conditions. Imagine learning and developing skills to cope with a variety of situations that include: structure and wildland interface fires, emergency medical responses, hazardous materials spills and many other emergencies.
