Hi I'm Katie and I'm a FF wife TO BE :) Ward and I are getting married June 11.. We've been together for almost 8 years though. There are times when he is so busy and I've needed some support and I have had no one.. Recently I went online and googled some FF wives/fiance/gf support groups.. I found one website and have attempted to sign up 3 times now, and every time their moderator, for some reason, does not approve of my account? It has made me so frustrated.. But after more googling I found this site, and I'm hoping to find it helpful!

Tell me all the info, lingo, or anything else I need to know! :)

Hi Katie!

Welcome to our board - I hope you find a home here. It's slow, but we all usually check in and if you need something we try to help.

I'm Jami (35), married to Don in Portland, Or. DH is a ff/paramedic/hazmat tech for Portland fire. He has been a career FF since 1997 and he LOVES it.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of the FFs you have had there. Sara is right, your worry won't help, I know it's hard, but try to keep a positive outlook, and keep your head up. Don't let the worry consume you. I hope they've got it under control by now!

Go fill our your welcome wagon Sara pulled out for you so we can all get to know you better :)

Thanks for the welcome ladies! My fiance actually LOVES being a ff. He's slightly obsessed.. Which makes for some arguments sometimes lol



Its actually a perfect night to have you guys because I'm kind of freaking out.. There's a big forest fire in our area, 100s of acres (which probably isn't a lot compared to all those cali forest fires.. but this is a big deal in our area!) and 2 men have died already.. The wind is really starting to pick up, and I'm getting worried. My dad, who is also a ff but isn't on the call, said that people are "dropping like flies" I can't stop stressing and worrying :( Keep them all in your prayers!

Just realized I didn't include very much info :) My fiance is a volunteer FF in a little town in Virginia. He's a captain, and the chief engineer, so he's in charge of all the equipment maintenance. He went to school to be a mechanic, but his full time job is a chicken farmer.. I'm in school right now to be a Radiologic Technologist. We met in middle school and started dating then, and have been together ever since :) As I said before, we are getting married in June and CANNOT wait!
