personal interests community yachats rural fire protection district volunteer
Inspired by my high school son's service to the Yachats Volunteer Fire Department as one of the two youngest EMTs in the state of Oregon,
I joined the department in 1996 and, through training classes, earned the rank of Lieutenant with training in incident command, emergency vehicle
driving, pumper engineering, manning hoses, water rescue, and patient extrication with the "jaws of life."
My wife, Lynn, is also a volunteer and serves as an on-scene Safety Officer.

Annual 4th of July Yachats Rural Fire Protection District's Community Bar-b-que, Yachats, Oregon, 2005.
Working with other volunteers, I made up a notebook on setting a menu and outlining how to set up the Bar-b-que equipment.
Although Lynn and I are not as active on emergency like we used to be, each year we try to help with the organization
and running of the Annual Bar-b-que which serves over 400 meals each year after Yachat's infamous "La-De-Da Parade."
