About Me:
I was a Deputy Chief, now retired after 11 1/2 yrs, with the Assn. Aux - Vol Firefighters in West Lawrence, NY, serving on a disaster response team and a ceremonial unit. I was a 9/11 volunteer with NYC Transit. I also volunteer, with the following organizations: NYC Medical Reserve Corps and Red Rover Responders.The AAVF ceased operations on 4/17/21
Day Job:
Retired
Relationship Status:
Married
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
After volunteering at Ground Zero on the pile, I felt that I needed to do more to help out the next time another disaster occurs. I then became involved in disaster response as a volunteer with several organizations. In 2009, I joined the fire service. I am grateful, that I am able to serve those in their time of need and give back to the community.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love being a part of the fire service, because it is truly a brotherhood, proud in tradition, and always there to serve.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Top issues that I feel are facing responders in the volunteer fire service are, recruitment and retention. Also the lack of funding for updated equipment, supplies and training is especially hard, on smaller departments.

The Assn. Aux-Vol Firefighters, located in West Lawrence, NY, has ceased operations as of 4/17/21, due to under staffing. The AAVF had been in existence for 31 years and served the community of West Lawrence in Far Rockaway in many different functions, including 9/11, the crash of Flt. 587 in 2001, the Blackouts in 2003 and 2006, several tropical storms, Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012. We thank everyone for their service and we are proud to have served our community. The AAVF, lived up to it's mission statement, 'Going In Harms Way'!
