About Me:
I am a life long volunteer firefighter. My father joined our one and only company the spring before I was born so I have grown up around the fire company. I was a second generation fire chief when I was installed as the youngest fire chief in my company history at 24 on 1/1/1996 and am currently the a second generation President of the Company. We are the first father and son team to be both Fire Chief and President in the Company. To continue family fire service tradition my only sister is now starting her way up the chain as our company's Training Officer and first female Line Officer. In addition to my local Fire Company I also have a passion in working for the good of all volunteers in not only my county (Past President of County Volunteer Firemen's Association and Fire Chief's Association), my section of New York State as President Elect of the Western New York Volunteer Firemen's Association and in New York as Chair of EMS for the greatest State Firemen's Association, the Firemen's Assoociation of the State of New York (FASNY).
