About Me:
The fire department and service is my mistress. I love my job, and feel it is the most challenging career one could ever have. Im disgusted by the illness that I see running through our service, people that come in with a bad attitude, making things about money, and feeling like they are owed something. Other then that, try to keep a positive attitude in and out of work and like to get away. Usually to somewhere cooler then SFLA.

How are you?
Just wanted to reach out to a few of my fellow floridian brothers and sisters. I am a Firefighter/EMT and recent graduate from the Fire Academy at IRSC (St. Lucie County, but I was raised in Broward!). I made a couple of Firefighter Tribute Songs and cadences that I thought I would share. You can see them in the video section of my FFN profile. I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you and God bless.
