What is the coolest thing about your job and why?
Getting to see how turnout gear is made and understanding some of the research and development that has gone into our design. Having spent several years donning firefighter PPE, I now get to see cutting edge products and understand how they can save the lives of my brothers and sisters that are still fighting fires daily. It truly excites me to wake up and come to work every day. That is a feeling that I haven't felt in many years.
