My Training:
I've got the all of the typical training and certs that go along with 29 years in the fire service. It's boring.
About Me:
I have been a Fireman (Captain II) with the Arlington, VA Fire Department since 1984 and still look forward to going to work everyday. Not many people can say that about their jobs!. The best part of being a fireman is hanging out around the kitchen table with your buddies telling war stories, bitching about everything and joking with each other relentlessly. It's a great time and you can't beat it!

I enjoy classic cars and trucks, especially Mustangs and antique trucks. I own a 1967 Ford fire truck and a 1967 Mustang.
I enjoy going to the movies, watching TV in bed, reading the many magazines I subscribe to, surfing the internet, riding my bike, restoring my 1967 Mustang, hanging out with friends, going out to eat, meeting new people and spending time with my sons. I enjoy throwing back a few Miller Lites although I am not into the "bar scene." I do enjoy going out with friends and have a good time and just hanging out in general.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
The fire service has been a family tradition, uninterupted, since 1898. It spans five generations. It started with my Great Grandfather in Atlantic City and has included my Grandfather, Father, Uncle, Brother and my sons. Besides, is there anything else?
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Is there anything else????
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Politicians, Pay and benefits, adequate staffing levels, adequate training, promoting unqualified people to supervisory roles, retention of EMS folks.........

Hi Randy, I was wondering if you could help me with obtaining a Clarendon patch for our display board. I sent a letter to your dept. and also talked to a Norman Lopez about getting a patch.
I have not heard from anyone as to the status of obtaining a patch.
I am in the process of making a display board with all the Clarendon FD's patches in the nation.
Please let me know if you can help. Stay safe. Norm
