This week we meet Greg Falck.
Could you provide a brief background of your fire service career?
I am in my second year with Comox Fire Rescue, and is my first employment as a firefighter. Past relevant experience includes medical training with the military as well as employment as a commercial raft guide where I practised and instructed swift water rescue.
Was there any specific event that first interested you in becoming a fire fighter?
After being involved in several successful rescues while white water kayaking and rafting I have come to find the experience very rewarding.
What is your favourite part of volunteering for Comox Fire Rescue?
Comox Fire Rescue provides the opportunity to be involved in a life saving organisation and supplies structure and community now that I am out of the military and operate an adventure tourism business.
Outside of the fire department, what are your interests/hobbies?
Both my business and personal life now revolve around my passion for kitesurfing, hydrofoiling, and sharing adventures with others!
Chief Schreiner states, "Greg has been a great addition to our team. It is because of people like Greg that we have a great department and can provide outstanding services to our citizens. Keep up the great work Greg"
