Chaosmet, thanx for the compliment. I still miss the field work. My doc says I'm very fit , even for a man 15 + years younger, but the back is dicey. So I guess too long in the tooth to resume regular ambulance response work.

In my law practice I've helped towns with volunteer corps qualify for legal insurance payments, while maintaining their volunteer status with no co-pay fee from residents . Those insurance premium payments have proved a valuable resource to volunteer corps and helped assure their financial health despite trimmed direct government support.

JeffMc, I'd love to hear how you made the transition from active attorney to emergency manager? Care to share? I still enjoy the practice of law, almost 40 years in. But I'll admit to a twinge of envy at your successful transition.

IANAL, but IAAA (I am an archaeologist), and I have had a long and rewarding career in that field. But I feel that my work as a SAR volunteer was the best and most rewarding work I have ever done..

Volunteer work has all kinds of subtle rewards....

All first responders and emergency services personnel have my respect and gratitude. Their dedication, skill and courage are demonstrated daily around the world. It is nice to be part of something like that, and it becomes such an important part of you that will never go away.

I usually add a small flashlight and cutting tool; folding knife or bandage scissors.
