My name is Bryan Altman, I am 24 years old. I am married to most wonderful woman in the world. My Son Preston was born recently on the 10 of September, he is my pride and joy and looks just like me (he looks like a fireman too!!!). I am a Lieutenant at my full-time firehouse and a Captain for my volunteer firehouse. I love the fire service with all my heart and take it very seriously. I was awarded Firefighter of the Year in 2004 and 2007. I strive everyday to make myself a better fireman not only to keep myself safe but my fellow firemen as well. I instruct MOD 1 classes for my full-time and part-time department. I also help instruct the FF1 class at Moultrie Tech College and I also assist with training at the Ga. Fire Academy. I love to teach I blieve it is my calling to become Training officer. Everyone stay low, stay safe, and never stop learning!!
