Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
I have worked at Fire Dept.'s all over the World as a military firefighter.
I am certified to the level of; Fire Officer III, Inspector II, Rescue II, Haz-Mat IC to name a few of my training endeavors. Currently working to finish my associates degree.
I love being in the Fire Service. I am married, three kids and will be sad when I eventually get too old to ride the trucks anymore.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
When I was four there was an industrial complex fire in my city. My Pops took mw to the fire line because I was frightened to talk to a firefighter (Dad's best attempt to calm me down). A tired fireman kneeled down on his way to re-hab and told me 'don't to worry kid", he would'nt let our city burn down. I was hooked!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I am honored to aid others, when the angels are still responding.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Long term cardiac health of first responders and sticking to tradition even when it compromises our safety.
