My name is Paul McBride and I recently moved back home to Alaska after several years in the Air Force. I am looking at going back to school but in the meantime I've started volunteering with the local Fire Department. As of now we've gone through Emergency Trauma Technician and have just started Basic Firefighter. So, it's going to be a little bit before we respond to anything. Previously I volunteered at Gore Hill while stationed in Great Falls, Montana. I have a little bit of Ground Search and Rescue experience through the Civil Air Patrol and I was on the Red Cross Disaster Action Team at my last station.
I look forwards to learning from everyone and getting started on making this a career!
