I've been in the fire and rescue service for about 23 years (time flies when your having fun). I've been an active volunteer in my home county for all of those 23 years and have about 17 years total career expierience between 2 different departments as well as several part-time gigs in fire and rescue as well as teaching. I have a wife and 2 kids with one on the way. I come from a firefighting family, and all together, my family has about 145 years in the service. I love the brotherhood of my profession and the folks I work with as well as the job itself.
I also enjoy being with the wife and kids, fishing and building stuff.
