Staff Sgt. Patrick Malone (foreground), a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System section chief with 1st Battalion, 94th Field Artillery Regiment, 17th Fires Brigade, and a volunteer emergency medical technician for the Bald Hills Fire Department in Yelm, Wash., prepares to cut the top off a wrecked car with a Jaws of Life tool to gain access to injured occupants during a training exercise using role players from the department. The training serves to keep the knowledge and skills refreshed for volunteers who work at the station, where Malone has dedicated at least 24 hours of his time each month since August 2007.
