I have been involved with volunteer fire service since 1988. I served in a volunteer department in Pine Cove, Riverside County, California; in Johnson Valley and Landers, San Bernardo County, California, particularly during the time of the Landers Earthquake. I have been a volunteer in any department that had volunteers since that time and have been with my present department since 2004. I have been a volunteer engineer but am currently only a Firefighter 1. I was an EMT while in California but now satisfy myself being a First Responder since I retired. My wife and I own a small business making wildland firefighter gear. The company is Ranger Pro Field Equipment, LLC and has a web site at WWW.RangerPro.com.
