Some Things About Me:

Hello. Welcome to my homepage. I have been a fire fighter/paramedic with the Edwardsville Fire Department since 1991. I have been in the fire service since 1980. I am certified in Illinois as a Fire Fighter III, Fire Officer I, Fire Service Instructor II, Fire Apparatus Engineer and Hazmat Technician A.

I am a proud member of IAFF Local 1700 which represents the paid career fire fighters of the Edwardsville Fire Department.

The Edwardsville Fire Department is a combination department with 18 paid career fire fighter/paramedics. We are supplemented by a volunteer company of approximately 25 members who assist the paid career fire fighters when needed. The department has one Fire Chief, and three Captains. The Edwardsville Fire Department operates 4 ALS ambulances (1317,1318,1327 & 1328), 1 1500 GPM pumper (1310), 1 1250 GPM pumper (1320), 1 1000 GPM reserve pumper (1312), 1 2000 GPM 75' Aerial ladder, Quint (1315), 1 400 GPM mini-pumper/rescue (1323), and 2 Jeep Cherokee utility vehicles (1319 & 1329). We answer about 2000 calls per year, of which about 80% is EMS related.
(Shown below is ALS ambulance 1317, Ladder 1315, Engine 1320 and ALS ambulance 1327.)

As I said I am a collector of fire department shoulder patches. Shown above is my fire department's patches. Email me if you would like to set up a trade.
