I live in a pretty small town, which is served by a volunteer fire service. I have thought for years about doing something where I could give back to the community, once I was in a position where I could. I had even thought about joining a volunteer fire dept a few years back when we were looking at moving to a tiny town in Colorado, but we didn't move there after all. So is there anything I should consider before I do this? I have talked to one of the firefighters about it, and it sounds like something I could do. What do you think? What are the negatives about doing volunteer fire fighting? I.G.B.
