Why did you become a Firefighter?
I wanted to serve my community in some way and would rather put myself at risk than others.
Favorite thing about being a Firefighter?
Mr. Rogers once said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” I get the honor and privilege of being one of those helpers.
