I began my career with Graham Fire & Rescue January 1st, 1999. At the time I was hired, I was our 21st employee and we had one career station and four volunteer stations. Meridian had very few commercial establishments on it and areas like Frederickson hadn’t really been discovered yet. Today I look around and am amazed at what I see in the Graham area. Our population continues to increase as more housing developments, commercial establishments and schools are now in our area. As our community continues to grow so has our department. We now have almost 70 career fire fighters staffing five stations and a dedicated group of volunteers that cover our sixth station. Things have certainly changed over the last twenty years and will continue to do so. One thing that hasn’t changed are the great group of men and women that make up your fire department. I enjoy going to work because of the people I get to work with and the opportunity we have to positively impact our community. Our community is important to me as I live in the Graham area so this is my community, these are the schools my kids attend and these are the people I interact with.
When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife, my son and my daughter. I enjoy supporting my kids school and athletic events and sports in general. I love playing golf and our family camping trips to places that are sunny and warm.
