IFSAC and DOD Cert proficiency are at the top of my list these days. Training others helps me to become better at what I do. Conference training for the State of Alaska has become my latest test for myself. Engine Company Ops with live burn was a success this year and I hope it lives on in the future. 1%
Areas of expertise:
Expert of none, student of all.
Started at the University Fire as a student in 1996 after my room mates bet me I couldn't pass the agility test. The rest was history. My old man was a wildland fireman for 30 years so a similar career fit. Bounced around the sate for a few years but finally found my way home to UFD as a Captain. Have since moved on to a Lieutenant at Fort Wainwright. Loving it!
