Lives in:
10 Kings Road
Hartford, CT Fire Department
Years of public service:
Agency structure:
Paid fire department
Top issues in your department:
Training, EMS First Responders, a lot of new hires in the past few years and the average time on the job/experience level is much lower than it was with all of the veterans. Fires are down and the "experience" is harder to come by.

Married to my great wife Debbie for 17 years and the proud father of 3 Patrick(14) Charlie (11) and Allie (9). I started into the fire service as a junior firefighter in a volunteer dept. at the age of 16 and retired from the vollies last year with 23 years of service. I started with the Hartford FD in 1994 as a firefighter at E-8. I made Driver/Deputy Chief's Aide in 2000 and promoted to LT at E-11 in October 2007.
