I would like to be considered for a position on the Operating Committee. I have lived in the Dunn’s Corners Fire District for 17 years. I was the Chief of the Misquamicut Fire Department for 15 Years and retired that position in 2014. Since that time I have not been involved in any aspect of the department operations at any level. I do still help out for any and all boat rescues due to my experience as a boater and will help with other emergencies from time to time. During my time as Chief and while working as a full time Paramedic/Firefighter in Connecticut I took extensive training classes which I feel give me knowledge of department operations. I prepared a yearly budget, kept records, and worked with various state agencies to meet state and local requirements. I was a certified ADSFM and hold my Firefighter II certificate as well as many others. Also during that time I worked with Fire Fighters from both Connecticut and Rhode Island giving me insight into the various issues that arise in the fire service and how they were rectified.
Just over a year ago I finished up a multi-million dollar building project which I oversaw and ran as the “clerk of the works” as they say. We came in under budget and on schedule.
