Bio:
I began my Fire career as a volunteer for the Van Etten Volunteer Fire Dept at age 17. I was an active member there for a little over 9 years. I held various Asst. Chief positions for the last 6 years there with the exception of my deployment for Operation Desert Shield/Storm.
I began my employment as a Career firefighter in Feb 1995. I served on Engine and Truck companies but spent most of my early career on the Rescue Unit. In 2000, I became a NYS AEMT-Paramedic. I was assigned as a Lieutenant on the Rescue,upon my promotion in 2003, until the unit was deactivated during our most recent manpower cut. Since then, I have been assigned to Engine 5, where I am currently the House Officer for that Station. This station was built in 1911 and once held horse drawn units and is the oldest active station in our county. As needed, I also am assigned to the Truck company to cover as Acting Captain.
I have been a State Fire Instructor since 2004,Municipal Fire Instructor since 2003, and am an instructor at the New York State Fire Academy for the Recruit Firefighter Training program.

My favorite Haz Mat Acronyms:
IDLH- I Don't Like Haz Mat (How most FF's Feel)
SUPAC - Sneak Up, Peak Around Corner
CHAOS- Chief Has Another Outstanding Suggestion
