Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
I'm also with Hammond Rural Fire Department which is a combo department but I dont do too much with them. My primary department runs a lot of calls with them and thats pretty much the only time I do anything unless they call me and need me to work. Im an operator with them and have been with them for 6 years
I have IFSAC FIREFIGHTER I, IFSAC HAZ MAT OPS, STATE CERTIFIED HAZ MAT TECH, AND FIRST RESPONDER. I AM WORKING ON MY EMT AND SHOULD HAVE THAT WITH IN THE NEXT 3 OR 4 MONTHS.
I have wanted to be a firefighter basically since the day I was born. My dad is a District Chief with 29 years on the job with Hammond Fire Dept, and now Ive been with Hammond for 4 years now. At the age of 16 I joined Natalbany Volunteer Fire Dept as a junior firefighter. At the age of 18 I left Natalbany and joined Hammond Rural Fire Department as then became an operator and started working there. Then on January 28th of 2006 my dream came true I had my first day with Hammond Fire Dept. Since then Ive gotten back with Natalbany and stopped doing as much with HRFD, I am also on the auxillary list for Livingston Parish Fire District 2 in Springfield, Louisiana.
