    My First Footsteps
    When I was a little over one year old, I took my first footsteps. It was of the first goals I had when I was young. It was a big step in life for me. This is how most people get around and it is an important skill in life. Now I could really start getting into things around the house.
  • First day of School

    First day of School
    September 7th 1998 was my first day of school at Fairfield Township Primary School on Ramah Road. I started to meet people and make friends. It was scary at first but then after a few days I got used to it and it was alright. I only went to school for half the day until I went to first grade, then it was all day. It was the start of a new adventure in life.

    Joined Fairton Fire Department
    I became a junior member of the Fairton Fire Department on November 19, 2009. I started out as a Junior member because I am under 18 so this coming April I will be an official member of the Fairton Fire Department. I spend a lot of my free time at the firehouse so that when a call comes in, I can go out with the squad or fire truck and help out. I like helping the EMTs and talking to the patients. I am really learning a lot.
  • Completed first half of Firefighter 1 Training

    Completed first half of Firefighter 1 Training
    On March 31 2010, I completed the first half of Firefighter 1 Training at Cumberland County Vo-Tech. I had to complete written and hands on experience to pass the class. I had to complete forceful entry, hoselines, splinklers, ladders, ropes and knots, and savage/overhaul skills. All of these skills have different uses on the fire ground and you need all of them to fight a fire and survive. I got the best score on tying knots and the second best score of the class on putting on the SCBA gear.

    Certified Firefighter 1 Candidate
    When I compltete this half of Firefighter training, I can go inside a burning building and rescue victims and put out the fire. This half of the training is mostly hands-on training and hardly no book work so that makes it way more exciting. I am also participating in drills with Fairton Fire Company.This photo shows a group of us that practiced extrication methods from cars that were in accidents.

    I will get a job as a Paramedic in 2013 after I complete my training and pass the written state exam. I picked this field of study because I like to help people and its interesting trying to help people with their medical problems. Also, I will get to do advanced medical support which is better then just regular EMT.

    Flight Paramedic
    Once I get my Paramedic License I want to become a Flight Paramedic. A Flight Paramedic treats trauma patients through air transport so they get to a truama center quickly. I always wanted to fly in a helicopter and treat patients all at the same time.
