I'm a happily married father of four daughters. Having 4 girls has made my hair grow grey, and I'm constantly placed 10-15 years then I actually am. Other then the Fire thing, my Hobbies include Fantasy Football, Genealogy, and I'm an avid Volleyball player.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Family tradition. I'm 4th generation and my earliest memories are of riding on my Grandpas lap in the engine during the Memorial day Parade. Walking in that firehouse (neighboring community to mine) and the smell of it still brings back pleasant memories. Growing up and idolizing my Dad and all his war stories. How could I not get into the service? :-)
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love the tradition, and of course the occasional thank you you get from Joe Public.
