  1. Jacob Hoffman - Forum Tag Request

    Roleplay Name: Jacob Hoffman Tags Needed: EMS Reason/Proof for Tag: I've been reinstated into the department and need my forum tags to acess the ems section. http://imgur.com/a/9GWMC
  2. Role play name: Jacob Hoffman Date: 2017-05-26 Position in Current Department: Sergeant of Patrol Department requested: EMS Reason for Transfer (50 words minimum): During the recent years that I've been with the sheriffs department I've seen us thrive. Back from beeing a smaller detachment of deputies to a prosperus department with many different agencies and bueraus. Even though times have changed, we've always done our very best to protect the citizens of this wonderful county. However our brothers and sisters within the ECEMS have seen better days. During the recent past I've seen them struggle. Struggle to have manpower, collaboration and maybe even the public trust they so much deserve. My mission will always be this. I will do my very outermost to protect the people living on these prosperous islands. Having close to five years of experience from the ECSD beeing both out on the streets, at sea and working the most dangerous situations with the ERU I feel this call. And that call is to reach out my hands and assist the ECEMS and the citizens, only this time wearing a different uniform and protecting lives in a whole different manner. With that said, I am hereby requesting to leave my duties at the ECSD and move over to the ECEMS. What we can do to better the previous department: There are always things to improve. But I'd just like the department to keep on evolving and learning the same way as it has. *Before the current department can sign off on the transfer request. The applicant must have an approved application on file with the new department, along with the highest ranking officials approval of the request.*
  3. First Name: Jacob Last Name: Hoffman Date of Birth (Real Life): 1995-06-07 Current Age (Real Life): 21 Social Security Number(Steam ID): 76561198074056501 Current Location and Timezone (Real Life): GMT+1, Sweden Give us a brief description about yourself. (150 Words) (Real Life) I'm a simple guy from Sweden who's been playing different life mods on arma for a few years now. Been around orgobyte for just over a year and I've been loving every second of it. Met so many nice and interesting people, some who I call friends. I'd say that people would describe me as a very easygoing person who has a very positive attitude and doesn't get mad over small stuff. Currently working within customer service (soon to quit) and aiming for a future within medicine. To be precise, I'm starting university this fall to become a nurse with the intent to work within emergency medical services in the future. I do see it fitting me doing this kind of RP just before that. I have some previous experience of EMS RP from other communities, but it's very limited. No matter what happens, my main priority here on this community is to deliver great RP for everyone and make sure that we're all enjoying it and are having a blast! Why do you want to join the EMS Department? (150 Words)(IC) I'd say that I'm speaking the truth in saying that the medical services here in the county have seen better days. At least this is something I as an LEO, business owner and citizen of this county have gotten a picture of. Ever since I stepped foot on the soil of kelleys island I've been in love with it. During my years with the ECSD I've worked by one strong motto to me, to protect the people of this county. This is my reason for wanting to achieve a position within the ECEMS. To help the people. I can not sleep with the thought of us having a lack of personnel within the ECEMS. The thought of the people I love being exposed to the dangers of this world haunts me. The thought of an ambulance arriving just too late to save my neighbours life, because of low staffing? No. For me it's a calling. The very same calling that once made me put a badge on my chest and carry a gun on my hip. The call to protect. That is why I want to join the ECEMS. What qualities do you possess that would help you working as EMS? (100 Words)(IC) Having years of experience within the ECSD will obviously help me out on this journey. Basic first aid, emergency driving and radio communication are things I know with my eyes shut. This I know will help me get settled in my new profession. For a few months I was also working with the DFW as a game warden. It helped me sharpen a lot of my skills and I even learned things like search & rescue, diving and how to operate boats in burdensome conditions. Also being a part of the emergency response unit has helped me further my knowledge in team coordination and how to keep a calm head even in the most gruelling situations. My recent time within the ECSD I've been a field supervisors for patrol deputies. Getting comfortable in a commanding role with a lot of decisionmaking is definitely something that will come in handy within the ECEMS. What is your greatest failure and what did you learn from it? (50 words)(IC) To this day there is one thing that I'll never forgive myself for doing. What I did was... nothing. Back a few years ago I had an employee at the waffle house who in my book wasn't the very greatest. One could see from miles away that he had troubles. You'd definitely see his struggle with drugs and alcohol and possibly other wrong decisions in life that he made. And what did I do to help him? Did I offer any advices? Take him to rehab? No. I fired him. During those years I was so focused with my business that I failed to spot a fellow citizen in need. I acted like a corporate jerk, only thinking about my self image and the business. Today he rests and the county graveyard. No more will I stand by and not act when someone is in need of my help. Never will I value material things and wealth over human life. Never. For whatever happens to me in my future life, I'll never forget it. I have to live with the fact that I did absolutely... nothing. Do you have any experience with being a EMS/Medic? (Rank/Where)(IC) Not organized. Only been a volunteer back in A3L and used to rock as ESU in Arma 2. Can you communicate properly using the English language? Yes! Do you intend to eventually pursue a career within the other departments? (Dishonesty will impact the difficulty of transition to department of choice): Unlikely, but not impossible. I Jacob Hoffman, hereby authorize Erie County Fire and EMS to conduct a criminal background and DMV check. In connection with this, I also authorize the use of the Erie County Sheriff's Department to assist the Erie County Fire and EMS in collecting and verifying such information. I am also aware that records of arrests on pending charges and/or convictions are not an absolute bar to employment, as it is at the discretion of the EMS command.

Yes Do you understand that before applying for the Sheriff's Department, you must play as a civilian for two weeks? Yes Have you had any traffic infractions, within the last two weeks? If so, please list: No Have you ever been convicted of crime (misdemeanor or felony)? If so, please list and explain how long ago: No Do you understand that if accepted, your interview will take place in game? (This interview will consist of the Sheriff, Under Sheriff, another member of command and a randomly picked civilian by the Sheriff) Yes Do you understand that if you pass your interview, you will be allocated a temporary position of Special Deputy for two weeks? Yes Do you understand that if NO LOA (Leave of absence) is given, and you are not actively playing for 2 weeks, you will be terminated from the Sheriff's Department? Prior notice will be sent by the Administration Lieutenant through the forums before your termination. Yes Provide a DETAILED description of your most memorable role play experience (Minimum 150 words): A few nights ago me and my friends Kieran and Taylor were hosting an event at the Darmouth Racemay. It was quite similar to the ”star in a reasonably priced car” as seen on the tv-show Top Gear. We invited everyone on the island via twitter/chat to come and have a hot lap in our reasonably priced car, in this case my mighty Volkswagen Golf GTI. This really is the most memorable scenario so far in terms of roleplay. All the participants where really in for it and gave their best to win the grand price of 50,000$. Some where even so keen to beat their first set times that we decided to give them another chance. We were having many laughs at the ridiculous things that occured on the track and the whole thing was really a blast! But what gave this one a special place in my memories was thanks to the EMS personnel and deputies on duty that night. We asked to have them help up close off parts of the track and build a temporary viewing area. They where even so nice to provide us with medical equipment for any of the less skillfull drivers and to keep the even rolling without any major mishaps. Also kudos to Special Deputy Frank Jeffreys for setting the fastest time and winning the money! Tell us about yourself OUT OF CHARACTER (Minimum 100 words): I’m a 21 year old dude from Sweden currently working as customer support. However I am striving towards a career in law enforcement here in Sweden. When I’m not at work or stuck here infront of my monitor I enjoy spending time working out and doing general excercising like running and cross country skiing. It’s been well more than three years since I started playing on life servers in Arma, starting of course with Arma 2. Judging from my hours Arma is my one favourite game but I still enjoy variation and beeing awesome at Dota2 because есть масло. Other than that I’d say I’m a quite companionable person. I love a good laugh and not taking some things to serious because I’d rather put my enegry towards things that matters rather than arguing about some unnecessary piffle. Tell us why you want to join Erie County Sheriff’s Department IN CHARACTER (Minimum 100 words): Since I stepped my foot out of that cessna I’ve been in pure love with this Island and the people residing here. It’s really been quite a one-eighty for me compared to my life back in Boston. Now I have a place to really call home, friends that will help me out and a safe community where I could possibly see me spending the rest of my days in. But in the last few weeks I’ve noticed a bad vibe on the island. The happy and positive people I used to know now keeps looking around their shoulders every two seconds and carries concealed firearms for personal protection. I’ve been a victim to crime myself. A few weeks ago when getting ready for work I had someone break into my home, in broad daylight. Sadly the offender was never caught, but I’s made me feel on the edge ever since. So the reason I want to join Sheriffs Department is because I feel that it is my duty as a citizen turn this boat around. I want other newcomers to have the same joyful experience and greeting I recived when moving here. With my knowledge of the community and my neighborly attitude I belive that I got what it takes to help this community stay the way I want it to be. Heaven on earth. Please answer the following IN CHARACTER: You and your partner, working a night shift, respond to a possible burglary in progress at a residential structure. When you arrive, you see there are no lights on in the house, and the front door is partially open. Your partner says he/she will go cover the back of the house while you cover the front. You ask for additional units and dispatch tells you they are all busy, but will send the first available car. You then hear the sounds of a commotion at the rear of the house. You approach the back and as you look around the corner you see the following; your partner is on his/her knees, hands in the air, head bowed toward ground, pleading not to be shot. A male is standing in front of your partner, aiming your partner's pistol at your partner's head. The suspect is about ten feet away from you and does not know you are there. What do you do next? In this tense moment the first thing on my mind would be to relay to the responding units about the situation. I’d do this if possible by carefully whispering into my radio. While doing this I would pull out my duty pistol and start to get verbal contact with the suspect. First thing is to get him aware of your presence , but not in a shouting way. What I’d do is to calmly tell him who I am and ask him to drop the firearm and surrender. While trying to negotating a peacful solution to this I would still not drop my guard. Should the suspect make a sudden move or do anything that may harm my colleague, him or me I’d be forced to put him down. Do you have prior experience as a LEO in this or any environment? If so please explain? (If you have any VOD’S, it would help.) I have a lot of it yes. Most of it is from the Arma3Life/A3L mod where I’ve been a part of both regular patrol departments, command and corrections. Sadly I dont have any vod’s but I’d love to share my experience verbally. With me I also have tons of experience from life mods in Arma 2. Do you have the ability to communicate properly within the English language? Yes Please paste the link to joining the Erie County Sheriff’s Department here:
