Why A Firefighter ? This is Why !!!!

Why a firefighter? Isn't it dangerous? How do you deal with the stress?

Well I'm here to tell you that yes, it is in fact very dangerous. And at times it can be very stressful. However, I don't do it for the stereotypical image of pulling little Sally out of a burning building. But don't get me wrong, I would have her unfortunate ass out of that building faster than you could say I think my house is on fire.

Then why do you do…

The First Fire (short story I wrote in 1994)


The burning rooms. The hot, smoky air. Just me and the company battling a raging inferno. I was barely twenty-two. My first real fire. I remember it well.

Welcome back to this, our third Predator Free Safety Tip.

For starters I could make a bet that with a pretty good guess I'd win. It's still a fact that our children still know more about the internet then most of their parents. That is where I start safety tip 3. Parents, to make a difference in your childs life or that of others, you have to become more educated about the internet than your child.

The statistics are growing daily last count was there are over 30 million… Continue

Child Predator Busters Mission and Vision

Child Predator Busters is a newly formed Organization that has a vision to make a difference in the amount of Child Predator's that are out there preying on our children daily.

Mountains To Die On

"Life is full of opportunities for us to take on battles. There are times when it is important for us to go to battle; Take a stance for causes that we believe in; stand up for what is right. Those times are mountains worth dying on. There are other mountains that are not worth the battle. Some disagreements and conflicts simply are not worth the fight. Maybe the issue is not that significant, not an issue of moral charictor or integrity. Maybe the risks of battle far out weigh the rewards…

Misty assists with serial arson investigation

Misty was instrumental in finding patterns that led to the fact that a serial arsonist was striking the Washington, DC area. Through her training, Misty was able to detect the presence of an ignitable liquid at many scenes which was one of many similarities at several fire scenes. As a result, a task force was created and a 22 month investigation brought to justice a serial arsonist that was responsible for over 300 fires. This collaborative effort was featured on a episode of Forensic Files…
