Going to schools and daycares to teach children

Becoming a part of a “TEAM”!!  Working together

with other firefighters and with EMS personnel is

very instrumental in being a good firefighter.

I plan to retire soon and spend lots of time with

family and friends.  I am engaged to a beautiful lady,

but we haven’t yet set a date.
