Roseburg Grants Pass, OR
I have always had a interest in wild land firefighting since I was a child. Growing up in southern Oregon, the Rogue Valley, there was always something burning! I only had one experience though, when I was 9 or so, my Dad's fire fighter friend took us to a extinguished fire, where I actually found a active hot spot. They let me put it out using the fire hose! Since then I took the classes, got certified as a FFT2. I also am trained in meteorology and as an emergency medical responder. I do have a landscaping work back ground, so out door work is nothing new to me. As well I am currently majoring in criminal justice as a full time student. I'm very physically active, love martial arts, hiking, running, camping, all of it. All though I have never actually been out on a fire as a professional, I would love to try it someday and see how it goes. Thanks.
