    Hi
    Full time. Lieut. In MI. Work 3 on, 4 off. Do fertilizing & aeration & slit seeding. Have about 190 accounts. Keeps me busy. Been in business since 1980. As I get older, alarms at night, the days are harder. In the winter and on raindays, head right to bed after I get home. Probably sell out in a few years after kids finish college

    Man! 30 calls. You are tough FireScooby.. We only run about 1300 calls per year at our house. Most nights we get to sleep. There are a few we dont and you really feel it the next day.

    Wow, holy FF thread this turned out to be...lol. I'll break it up as being a 10 year law officer and 7 year bomb tech. Just started the lawn care part time last fall. May have to switch over to the fire side for the hours! Our local guys run 24 hour shifts from 3 stations and I think they are only scheduled like 7 or 10 days per month. Maybe I've seen some of you guys in HAZMAT or WMD classes down south... Oh ya, I currently have about 10 accounts. Have a great year!
