    Hi All,

    Firefighter/Paramedic for city of Houston. Just started Lawn care business here and trying hard to get more accounts

    That's pretty busy, but check out my station stats

    Squad-5430 (2005 total runs)
    Ambulance-3855 (2005 total runs)
    Engine-2335 (2005 total runs)

    I am usually on the squad and some times in a 24hr shift I only see the station once or twice, and only for a few minutes. The crazy thing about it is my station isn't the busiest in the city. ( I think we are 2nd or 3rd). Sleep? what's that lol. I like it though. Never know what you will find. Although the following day it is hard to go mow lawns!

    I have two more weeks of EMT school and then next semester is paramedic school. Get hired at a department and then go to fire school.

    I'm just starting my business up as a professional organization and I hope to be able to keep it as my second job through the rest of my FF career.
