What am I? I’m a Retired Fire Captain form the Fayetteville Fire Department. Average, simple, honest and caring. Married to a beautiful woman for 25 yrs. Proud father of two great son’s 8 & 23 years old and a new granddaughter. I do everything with passion and the people who truly know me understand that. I love what I love and will do anything to protect the people I care about.
Life is so unpredictable, you do not know how long you have, and you should always try to show your love to those certain people you hold close to your heart. Oh, I like horses, raise them, fish, go to the beach, watch NASCAR go #88, watch Drag racing, cooking indoors and outdoors, most of all spending time with family.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
It was a child hood dream to oneday become a firefighter/EMT. So I did and never looked back. I have met alot of good people along this journy and miss being able to still respond.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love being able to make a difference in someones life.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Money Money Money and I can't forget the Politicans keep them out of the way and Emergency Resonders can do there jobs. They always want to balance the budget with Emergency Responders. Bring home the military and stop all that spending over seas and the United States wouldn't be broke. The USA can't servive without our responders so leave them alone and make sure they are equipted with the best. Just my thoughts.
