About Me:
Joined the fire sevice in 1997 as an EMT-B and Volunteer Firefighter in Big Rock and quickly became engrossed in the life and service.

I started working as a full time contract paramedic with Geneva in 2000 and went to Batavia in 2001. I was hired full time by Addison Fire Protection Dist. in 2003 where I currently work as a FF/PM and the American Heart Association Training Center Coordinator.
Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
After taking an EMT-B class, I found I thoroughly enjoyed the work, the comraderie, and the brotherhood of the service.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The ability to go from a well involved Structure fire one minute and the next, helping deliver a baby in the back of the bone-box
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Complacency, training, overall health and fitness(or lack thereof) of Firefighters, lack of administrations to take proactive roll in preventing FF LODD's by mandating fitness and other healthy lifestyle choices.
