Title: Firefighter/EMT- Basic

Years of Service: I have been a first responder for 10 years. I got my start when I turned 18 years old in Booker, Texas; a small town in the Texas Panhandle.

What led you to becoming a firefighter? I have grown up in the fire service, my father was an assistant fire chief for Booker Fire Department. Firefighting is in my blood.

What do you like about being a firefighter? I love to be able to help people and to be able to serve my community. It is an honor and a privilege to serve as a firefighter.

What do you like least about being a firefighter? Least thing I like about being a firefighter would be the type of calls with loss of life or losing the battle with a house fire.

What the most exciting moment of your years in service? A year ago I was able to assist with delivering a baby. Assisting in bringing a life into the world was an amazing experience.

What’s the best part of service in La Feria? Serving the citizens in this community is a honor.
