What a great site and an excellent resource for all kinds of challenges and training. I think my most challenging fire was when it was 25 below zero.

Hi! I'm trying to get Jason to sign up for a profile, he's been really busy. (He's actually training newbies right now down at the station...) We actually put together that big memorial service/procession out here for Cameron Carter in December- you guys had a truck here I think... anyways, it would be fun to get together sometime- do you guys have any kids? We have three. Talk to you soon!

Here in Valdez we usually get about 170 inches of snow a year, it’s great for snow machining but a pain keeping the hydrants and water valves clear! 300 on terminal and it is not uncommon to get three to four feet over night. My guys tell me Captains don’t shovel snow but I believe in lead by example (besides I can eat more turkey that way)! Have a great Thanksgiving and stay safe!
