I served on the Aurora and St.Charles Fire Departments where I spent 38-Yrs in the Fire Service. I moved through the ranks from FF/P to Lt. Capt.Deputy Chief of Operations, Asst. Fire Chief and Fire Marshal. I have the necessary background in building & fire codes. I have an understanding of fire ground operations, and management of support services. In 2009 I retired from the St.Charles Fire Dept. I currently conduct health& life safety inspections for the Kane County Regional Office of Education. I believe I have the the necessary time, and qualifications to serve the community in this capacity.
Working for a municipality I feel that I have a good understanding of certain policies and procedures for a government body so that I can add input to the board to assist in decision making. Also, with my background in mechanics, I feel that I can be an asset when it comes towards purchasing or repairing Fire and EMS vehicles and mechanical equipment.
