My Training:
I have numerous certifications... Local,county,state, and federal. Firefighter 1, various extrication courses, national certified Fire Instructor. Fire Investigation. I am currently a County Fire Instructor.
"“A certificate does not make you certified. Attitude, performance, commitment to self and team; These and a certificate make you certified.”
About Me:
The thing that I want people to know about me is that I am passionate about firefighting! I don't see "Paid v.s. Volunteer" I see a Brotherhood. Not everyone is a Brother, I'm sorry but the difference is how you approach the job. You can tell in someone's face and in their actions if they are a brother! You know when someone wants to go on a job, not just go do a job! How they train or drill, or just go through the motion's. Brother's do H.O.T. training while the T-shirt wearer's go to convention's. If you know me than you know what I am about, If you don't understand then you probably never will.fire

Motorized Equipment Operator- Town Of Tonawanda Highway Dept.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
it looks good on resume's! Bullshit, I am an adrenaline junky. You think it but I'll say it. My family has been doing it for four generation's.FiremenFirefighterfirefighter
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The brother hood in the fire service! For the those who read this and don't understand.... It is not about the paycheck or the pride, paid vs. volunteer, IT IS ABOUT THE PASSION!!! I know many career firefighters and I know a ton of volunteer firefighters. My brothers do it all out of passion. You can hear it in their voice, see it when they do whatever task there is a "JOB". A brother is a brother... through and through.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Politics!!!!!!!! Not enough politicians working with us or for us! To many law's being created by the suit's all over making our job's tougher by the day.

Hey, Randy! Hope all is well. I'm just starting to get to having time to chat on the nation. Once school is done I'll have more time to set up my profile. Take Care for now.

Just stopping in to say hello. Hope things are well at Sheridan Park. Got to say I love the picture of you on the company website. Is that the offical series of trading cards for the company? If so where can I get mine? Stay safe
