I am originally from Halifax, NS and have over 17 years experience in the fire service.
I have been employed as a teacher for the past 30 years, the last 20 with the Chignecto Central Regional Centre of Education. I also work as an adjunct Instructor at the Nova Scotia Firefighters School, where I instruct various fire service programs.
I currently serve as a Captain with the Truro Fire Service and have been an officer since 2008.
I have been fortunate to be able to achieve international certification as a Level Two Fire Service Instructor, Level Two Firefighter, as well as Hazardous Materials Operations Certification.
I have completed my Fire Officer Two Certification from the Nova Scotia Fire Service Professional Qualifications Board and recently completed certification as a Fire Investigator.
All of my Fire ‘History’ was due to my involvement with the Truro Volunteer Fire Brigade / Truro Fire Service. I am grateful for the opportunities provided to me and hope that I can continue to give back to our community.
Remember, “The best thing an old firefighter can teach a young firefighter is how to be an old firefighter”.
