Meet our Members: Adam Auld
This week on Meet our Members, we interview our newest Work Experience member Adam Auld!
CFR: Could you provide a brief background of your fire service career?
I've been a volunteer firefighter in Whitestone, Ontario for 5 years. I work full time as a rope rescue technician at Firewise training and consulting for 2 years.
CFR: Was there any specific event that first interested you in becoming a fire fighter?
I got interested in the fire service when I was 17 and joined my local fire department. I always wanted a job where I can help people and make a difference. Also I enjoy the variety and challenge the fire service offers
CFR: What is your favourite part of volunteering for Comox Fire Rescue (or working in the valley in general)?
My favourite part about volunteering for Comox Fire (other than the view of the mountains) is the amount of community involvement we do.
CFR: Outside of the fire department, what are your interests/hobbies?
Outside the department I enjoy hunting, fishing and atving.
CFR: What are some major changes you have seen in the fire service industry during your career?
The biggest change I've seen being in the fire service is the precautionary measure taken to help reduce the risk of cancers in firefighters.
