I am very dedicated to my fire department and I am engaged to another very dedicated firefighter. I was voted MFR of the year in 2008 by my fellow firefighters. I was very surprised and honored. The fire truck on my profile picture is a 2005 American Lafrance tanker. That truck is my baby. It arrived on the department the same year I did.
