About Me:
Well let me see here....I have been involved in the volunteer fire service since 2000 and became an EMT in 2001. I was asked to join my current department in 2001 and have been ther ever since. I left District # 4 in 2005 because running with 2 departments was so stressful and it was taking a toll on me. I am the Association Treasurer of the Glenoma Firefighters Assoc. and I am the grant writer for the department. I recently have been appointed the departments Equipment Officer.

As of October 2011 I have returned to District #4 to assist them and to see if I can do the two department thing again.
