Pros: weekly paychecks
Cons: not enough time to really learn the job
I would take EMS, and Non EMS calls. Towing of cars, break ins, fighting at schools, dog issues, burgulary. I learned how to look up people by birthdate, social security number, abandoned cars and many other aspects of the job
My co-workers were all like family in our department. Hardest part of the job was handing the incoming radio calls on certain channels.
I loved trying to assist our Officers, fireman to help rescue or help someone in distress.
