You're the kind of person who wants to get involved when people are in need. As a first responder-type, you're willing to put yourself on the line no matter what -- whether it's a tsunami or hurricane.
Fortunately you have the skills and resourcefulness needed in these types of situations. You may not have years of experience and training, but you do have the grit and problem-solving skills that would come in useful. People depend on you, and you come through when it counts.
