About Me:
I started out not knowing what profession of public safety I wanted to be in. I was a volunteer firefighter first. In the small town I was from, if you wanted to be paid, it was law enforcement or EMS. So I did both for a while. I ended up by blind luck, getting a dispatching job and that is where I made my career, never really laying any of the disciplines down. Dispatching really allowed me to combine the hodepodge of skills I had gained into one job. I guess you could say my career is kind of a swiss army knife.

Give me a call if you are interested in particular's on the Farmedic Program. Does Tenn do firefighter continuing ed thru a community college system simular to NC?
