I have been involved in the Fire serve since 1997. During those years I have worked full time as a Paramedic for Trinity Regional Hospital in Fort Dodge. I then became a Firefighter/Paramedic on the Fort Dodge Fire Department. As a member of that department I became involved in the Regional Haz-Mat team and Tech. Rope rescue team.
In the Winter of 2003 I accepted a job at the Urbandale Fire Department. I was recently promoted to Lieutenant. I also hold an Associates degree in Fire Science. I enjoy how dynamic the fire service can be. I also enjoy the amount of hands on work in all areas of of the fire service. I can not think of another job I would want to be doing right now.
