2nd generation F/F, 2nd Generation Captain. Like many of you, there are three main components in my life; God, Family, and the FIRE SERVICE. I was brought up smelling the odor of smoke and desiel fuel on my fathers uniforms. I had always wanted to be like dad. While in high school I was not absolutely sure what I wanted to do with my life. Then I came across an old picture that my pops had snapped of my brother and I when I was around 4 years old. I was sitting in the captain's seat on an old snorkel my dad rode, wearing his helmet and pretending to talk on the radio. That's when the fire was reignited and no one has been able to put it out since. Now I am a new captain trying to ignite the same flame under every member of my department. No one will ever put our flame out brother
