30 + years of training to include Fire Officer 3, HazMat Tech, Instructor 3, EMT-B, Driver/Pump Operator....
I am a retired Training Officer/Captain of the Parkersburg Fire Dept. I started out when I was 16 years old at Blennerhasset VFD and am back there again since retiring from PFD. I am a fire/ems instructor for RESA V PST, and program director for the Wood Co. School's Emergency Response Program at the Caperton Center for Applied Technology.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I have always been interested in the fire/ems service. Hope to continue helping people in their time of need for as long as I can.
