I am currently working to complete my Basic Volunteer FF certification. I have also completed ICS 100, 200 and NIMS 700.
I am a married father of three wonderful kids who, unfortunately, travels too much for his day job to remain as active as he would like in the fire service. I am actively looking for information on volunteer (or part-time) fire service opportunities in the Seattle area, should my day job require a transfer there.
I wanted to make a difference in my community in a role that would have an immediate and tangible impact. I also wanted to prove to myself that I could do something as physically demanding as firefighting.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Where else can you combine helping people and saving lives with such a great rush?
