Lou, I don't check this website to often- in fact I forgot I had signed up. I am a life long skier that has lived in Park City for 12 years. I work as a B/C in East Los Angeles area and commute to work. I saw you have a trip planned to my favorite resort "the canyons". i have had a pass there for many years and would enjoy hooking up with whomever comes up to ski. If you like off slope skiing this is the best resort in the area. By the way - you can get a "firefighter" season pass for $550 at the canyons. If you ski 8 or 9 days a year you break even. I average 50 days a season and make out like a bandit. My email address is rlynsky@cityofmontebello.com

About Me:
While I have spent my entire career with the Pinellas Park Florida Fire Dept. I have traveled and seen "how they do it" across the country. Much is the same but many have their own way. None right or wrong, just different.

I have always enjoyed teaching and have been a fire instructor for many years. I am currently working part time at St. Pete College teaching both minimum standards and a number of classes I developed my self. These are listed above under "My Training".

With retirement only a few years away I will be developing more classes for in-service delivery. I hate canned programs and find the classes I develop myself are more high energy utilizing computer presentations, short videos and pertinent pictures found on the internet. I try to keep my classes realistic and not basic.
Relationship Status:
Married

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
It's in the blood. 3rd generation. Father, Grandfather and a couple Uncle's were all in. It's all I ever really wanted.

For a minute I thought I might want to be a cop. Holy crap, what was I thinking!
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Budget and staffing cuts. Funny, when I cam in 27 years ago those were the same issues. Just keeps going in cycles.
