Hello my name is Slade Giles, and if I could earn a living what I love most it would be to work as a firefighter documentarian. This would entail working as a firefighter and recording all of my calls by helmet camera in order to document all of the different types of situations and environments that emergency personnel come into contact with. Over time I would be able to get enough data to make a documentary that could help save lives through educating other emergency personnel with the various types of hazards associated with emergency medicine and the various ways with which one can neutralize these hazards. I would also be interested in enlisting the help of other firefighters, flight nurses, and EMT’s across the country to help me with my endeavor by setting them up with helmet cams as well. This way I could get a large data set that encompasses the wide variety of environmental strata across our nation. In order to accomplish this I have a defined set of goals. These goals are to complete my education, get a job as a firefighter, set up a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise funding for helmet cameras, and lastly to set up a social media campaign to raise awareness and create a snowball effect for recruitment of interested emergency personnel who would help provide data. Thank you.
