jocoyn Most consider themselves "unpaid professionals" because lives are truly at stake and you actually are held to high standards....like volunteer firefighters.......only you get to pay for all your own training (usually).

jocoyn Training aids are hard to come by for most of us. (I tend not to talk about supplies OR searches on the boards....unless the post is a link to a newspaper article then not talking about any details...same thing with training videos....destroyed as soon as they are reviewed....lawyers )
