Muscatine Living

MUSCATINE, Iowa  Reece Hall is in his fourth year of service to the Muscatine community as a member of the Muscatine Fire Department, and enjoys the challenges the position presents while also welcoming the opportunity to live in his home town.

 

“The fire service has always been on my radar along with nursing,” Hall said. “The ability to live in my hometown was a plus to working in Muscatine.”

 

The 30-year-old firefighter/paramedic lives in Tipton with his girlfriend while enjoying the endless options that are available with Muscatine Fire.

 

“The different opportunities we are given, from inspector, to investigator, Critical Care Paramedic, HAZMAT Technician, and being a member of the tactical EMS team, are endless,’ Hall said. 

 

It can be a challenge to juggle all of the hats, however.

 

“While we are able to do so much, it can also be a challenge to juggle all of the hats that we wear,” Hall said.

 

Hall recommends that those who are considering a career in the fire service to determine what really drives them and to make it their own.

 

“This could be training, special operations, or EMS,” Hall said. “Whatever it is, find what really drives you and make it your own.”
