I served as an Ohio Police Officer for 7 years in the 70's, participating in accident scene management, accident reconstruction as well as participating in major drug seizures. I had moved to Southern California where I owned and operated a weekly television station and weekly newspaper from 1997 until 2001 when we closed both and I returned to Ohio. I joined Colerain Volunteer Fire Company in 2009 and am now the oldest man of age on this department. They are a great to work with and I am proud to have been appointed the PIO of this department. I took an Oath a long time ago "To Serve and Protect" , I can finish what I started here at CVFC. GOD willing and the creeks don't rise. We are all family from shore to shore,coast to coast and nation to nation. Keep safe my brothers & sisters,the public is depending on us to help them.
