And so it begins... my journey to become a certified EMT here in NJ, furthering my involvement in the Mendham First Aid Squad.
And I'm gonna share that journey with you... because many of you may have had the same reaction I did a year ago, and perhaps by my sharing my own journey, a few more of you will be motivated to join the squad and pursue becoming an EMT as well.
It's no small task, becoming an EMT. NJ state law requires 220 hours of training, and starting in January I'll be dedicating my weekends through May to classes, every Saturday and Sunday from 9am - 5:30pm.
So why am I doing this (and why is my wife putting up with it)?
