Why do you do it?
I grew up in Panama City, FL and started volunteer firefighting at 16 years old. It is a lifetime hobby! Being able to help your neighbor when in need, assisting in saving a life – well, it gets in your blood. Fire service is very similar to military service. Currently a lifetime member of VFW Post 4437 in DeFuniak Springs, FL. Proud and blessed to be able to serve our local community, state, and our Nation!
