Fire Service Leadership

No matter what type of tactics or operations your department provides, the quality and efficiency are dramatically affected by the leadership skills of your officers. Leadership is the most important element of everything we do!

Bio:
I started my firefighting career as a volunteer with the Riverside County Fire Department in California. Soon after I began working as a wild land firefighter for the California department of forestry and fire protection, now known as Cal-Fire. I worked for Cal-Fire as a seasonal wildland firefighter for 3 years, where I was able to respond to major incidents throughout the state of California. While working as a seasonal for Cal-Fire I was lucky enough to be hired as a permanent paid firefighter for the City of Colton Fire Department. I have been with the City of Colton since 2004. In Colton I have been in charge of new recruit training since 2008. I have evaluated and and developed the departments training manual, I serve as the departments public information officer. I have worked as a firefighter on the truck, several years as an Engineer, and now Captain. I currently sit on the eligibility list for Battalion Chief.
