Numerous classes through the Georgia Fire Academy, National Fire Academy, NIMS, Technical Rescue, etc.
I am 34 years old and happily married to my beautiful wife of 10 years, Kelley and we have 4 children. Two sons and two daughters. I have been in the fire service my entire adult life and still love it just like the first day.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Like any other young child I aspired to be a firefighter. I grew up across the street from a volunteer Fire Captain and played with his boys. When I turned 14 I was asked to come to weekly drill and check it out and the rest is history..
Why I Love Fire/EMS
