Lead FireControl™ Technician (Northern Division)
With 30+ years as a Construction Superintendent. I have done everything from building bridges, sewer rehabilitation to structural steel. I am married with five children and 7 grandchildren. I know the stresses of living in the “fire zone.” We were evacuated from the Thomas Fire and had no idea if we would have a home to come home to. Fortunately, the fire spared our home, but burnt within ten to twenty feet of it. My youngest son and I spent days putting out oak trees and spot fires. I have first hand knowledge of what it is like to live through a fire nightmare.
