The author discusses his decision to change his career, from being part of the Henderson Fire Department in Nevada to the City of North Las Vegas as its EMS chief. The decision to change, according to him, has been triggered not by the needs of money nor security, but because of what he considered a seminal career event to his life. However, he said he remains thankful to the National Fire Academy for the beliefs and philosophies, as well as to the chiefs at North Las Vegas Fire for the chance.
