Firefighter at Edmond Fire Department
in Edmond, OK

"Loved the opportunities and challenges. The worst part was seeing un-necessary death. The bombing in OKC was the most devastating scene I had ever worked. During those 12 days of 12 hour shifts, all we could do was recover, not rescue. That was really hard for all of us to swallow."

"I loved the work schedule. It allowed me the time to fulfill another career along the lines of safety. The ability to serve others and make a difference in someone else's life, was and is very rewarding. The only thing I disliked was seeing the unnecessary injuries and deaths. Like the Federal Building bombing."
