Professional Firefighter (Retired)

I'm a retired professional firefighter with 30 years of experience in a major metropolitan Fire Department.

I've responded to hundreds of fires throughout my career and have witnessed first hand the horrible tragedies that impact people's lives when a fire occurs in a home.

I've designed this course, Total Home Safety, to create awareness and to educate people on the importance of following Safe Practices in their home in order to reduce their risk of accidental fires.
