yes, free yoga classes.

We have probably 25% women over both EMS and Fire. We also don't have alot of sterotypical manly man firefighters...

As for other perks, free gear for service hours, breakfast on sundays, the opportunity to volunteer for more stuff...

We have a weird setup. The county owns and operates about half of the units in the county. The rest are contracted out to private companies, but everyone has the same dispatch, protocols, medical director, and hiring standards (all medics have to pass the same tests and meet with the MD)
