Chapter Meeting April 26, 2014:

This month marks our annual "Dangerous Jobs" meeting, where we bring in speakers who experience the sort of adventure we writers like to put in our stories.

Morning session: Firefighter Tony Cota

Tony Cota, firefighter for the Tucson Fire Department and 2014's cover model for the Tucson Firefighter's calendar will be heating things up with an discussion on the ins and outs of a firefighter's job description. You'll be front row to Fire Science 101 as Tony walks you through a typical fire scene and the responsibilities of each crew responding.

Afternoon session: EMT Michael Bissey

Michael Bissey, who recently graduated as a Paramedic after 6 years at Southwest Ambulance working as an EMT, will make sure your heart doesn't stop as he explains how working in emergency services is a lifestyle change and not a job. We will get to walk in Mike's shoes as he describes how working in EMS has changed the way he looks at the world and how he interacts with his family.

Pull on your suspenders and hop on that big red RSVP truck because you won't want to miss this meeting!
