About Me:
Born and raised in the fire service. Have of pride in my company and contributing to the day to day operations. I like to keep the original traditions going but like most volunteer departments volunteers are hard to find. One of biggest things i try to keep around are the cadet/ junior firefighters. I started at 14 years old and 10 years later I hold the title as a Lieutenant. I always like to learn new things in the fire service cause there is not such thing as a 'know it all.' Just like the saying, "There is no routine day in the emergency services." I always like hearing different ideas other companies have and trying to see if it will work for the company if not then we keep it as it is. I am always open to discussions.

Rules of Firefighting

Any tool, when dropped, will always come to rest in the least accessible place possible.


Any piece of firefighting equipment will never malfuntion or fail until

you need it to fight a fire

the salesman leaves.
