Could you provide a brief background of your fire service career?
My family lives close to the Fire Hall and I want to be a good role model for my kids. As a stay at home Dad currently, I want to continue learning new skills and trades. Comox Fire Rescue does a great job of including your family in events and the training process. It’s been great for myself and being able to include my kids at the Firehall.
What is your favourite part of volunteering for Comox Fire Rescue?
My favourite part so far of being at Comox Fire Rescue is the people involved. It feels like a community. Volunteering with the Fire Department has us also out in the town meeting the public and some great groups.
Do you have children or pets?
I have 3 boys, Parker, Jason and Micah that are 2, 4 and 6. And 1 cat.
What is your regular “Day Job”.
I’m a stay at home Dad. By trade I am a certified utilitiy arbourist (falling and climbing trees by power lines).
Outside of the fire department, what are your interests/hobbies?
I enjoy running, Crossfit, back country hiking and cooking ~ just to name a few of my hobbies.
If you could change one thing about the fire service, what would it be?
I wouldn’t change a thing about our fire service. It’s a very well rounded organization, run by the best.
