Interesting facts about yourself: I am a second generation Fire Captain with the Los Angeles Fire Department. I received the Medal of Valor award for the Camp 16 burnover on the "station fire", the largest brush fire in Los Angeles County history. I race to honor Tedd and Arnie, two fire department brothers we lost during that burnover.
