Public Safety Dispatcher/fire Investigator
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
The old cliche, just wanted to serve my community. Also carry on family tradition, four generations.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The feeling of knowing that i have been able to get my crews home safely after all calls.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Dwindling numbers in the volunteer sector. Also critical political issues in New York State regarding special interest groups trying to dismantle fire districts. New York state is in dire need of continued funding for the training of our fire fighters. Until we stop re-electing our slate of politicians in Albany, things will only get worse. Same of our reps in Washington. The lies just don't end.

Thank you Thank you for your kind words. The way you look at me with adoring eyes and for being the man that I have dreamed about for years. I appreciate and love everything you do for us (all of us). xxxx Have a good night see you in the morning!!! I love you
I don't think you will ever really know how much you mean to me!!!! You know when I need encouragement and are there when it becomes a little too overwhelming. You absolutely inspire me to be a better person. I continue to learn from you and I admire the way you've stepped up and provided the care that christopher and I need. I only hope you are as happy as you have made me!!! I promise I will try to keep a happy man. I love you , I will always love you !!
