I am proud to say that I come from three very strong families.

My Mom and Dad have always been there for both my sister and I and now they’re there for their grandsons,Kaden and Kurtis as well. The strength and commitment they’ve shown in always helping others is a deeply-rooted trait in my family’s history. My Dad served for 40 years in the Fire Service, as did his father before him. You could say the Fire Service has been part of growing up in my family.

I am proud to say that I am now one of the Deputies for a well-trained, well-equipped, and aggressive Fire Department.

I am also a part of the family at M&L Supply. Mark has built a fantastic company to work for and deal with. The team is ‘second to none’ and I can’t imagine working for anyone else.

I started this blog with the idea of talking about the M&L red tents and how they’re a fixture of the M&L family. You can see these tents popping up all over the country – at training sessions, golf tournaments, and family events. But, I think I like the idea of this blog being a way of saying my thanks to all my family members – at home, in the Fire Service, and at M&L Supply – for always being there for me.
