About Me:
Well traveled, love to cook, always involved with the fire service at some level... I might be taking a course, teaching a course, developing a new course, serving on a committee, or helping out in my union.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
There is more to it than meets the eye
Top Issues Facing Responders:
1. Health Care Coverage for a lifetime of service
2. After 9/11 the firefighter was a hero to many and the public, including politicians, saw the true nature of what it means to put firefighters in harms way. Unfortunately, this has worn off and the constant threat to downsize or understaff the fire department even at the risk of endangering the responders and the citizens is too much to take. We as firefighters need to stand firm and speak loud to protect ourselves from bureaucratic downsizing.
