Twenty years’ experience as a professional Firefighter/Paramedic. A Fire Captain with the Vestavia Hills Fire Department located in the Birmingham metro area of Alabama. An Operations Officer with Alabama Mutual Aid System Heavy Rescue 55 and a Captain with our departments technical rescue team.
An Instructor with Rescue 3 since 2006. I have experienced swiftwater and rope rescue training in a variety of locations around the country with some of the top Rescue 3 Instructors. My teaching experience, combined with twenty years’ experience in emergency services, technical rescue and a passion for spending time on the rivers and mountainous regions of Alabama, hopefully adds to a quality learning experience for all Rescue 3 students.
