I literally grew up in the firehouse my dad is the chief and has been my whole life, while other kids were playing with toy fire trucks I was playing on/around real fire trucks...lol...so naturally when I turned 16 I joined the dept. as a cadet then when I was old enough I took the Ohio VFF course, after bouncing around some local community colleges I went to Hocking college in Nelsonville Ohio and went through the FF1 and FF2 courses as well as other Fire Rescue Classes such as Hazmat and Rope rescue after that I took EMT-B in 2004....I also love hunting and fishing .....I'm also a bit of a sci-fi geek..ha ha, well I guess that everything about me, if you want to know anything else I guess you'll just have to ask.
