How many years were you with the University of Alaska Fire Department?

Just shy of 3 years.  From August 2010 to July 2013.


What is your favorite memory, story, experience, etc. while at the

University Fire Department?

It’s really tough to just narrow this down to one memory or experience.  Time and time again I think about how much fun I had at the UFD and how fortunate and proud I am to have been part of such an outstanding organization.  Some of the greatest memories I have stem from training out on the Station 2 pad, or just sitting around the kitchen table with the crew after a long shift and giving each other a hard time.  I made friendships while working here that will last a lifetime. My last day at the UFD was also very memorable, in that my final morning debrief was also my younger brothers first debrief with the department. 


Brief History/Biography:

I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.  My dad has been with the Anchorage Fire Department since I was very young and was a huge influence in getting me started on the path to a career in the fire service.  When I was a senior in high school I joined the Anchorage Fire Department Explorers program.  I graduated from South Anchorage High School in 2010 and moved up to Fairbanks that summer to start my FFI Academy with the UFD.  Upon completion of the Academy I was offered a position with the UFD, and thus the journey began.  I worked my way through the various check offs and certification within the department, while attending school at UAF and working towards my AAS in Municipal Fire Control.  Eventually I was promoted to Engineer.  After 3 years, I obtained my dream job and was offered a position as a Firefighter/EMT with the Anchorage Fire Department.  I am confident that if it were not for the University Fire Department, I would not be where I am today.  I have repeatedly seen the benefits of the experience and education that I gained while I was there.  The mentorship I received while working at the UFD is priceless and I will forever be grateful for all the help I received to get me where I am today.
