Comments:

Somehow fell into being a Firefighter around 1974 (in Lawrence) and continued in that for 26 years - last five as Olathe's Emergency Manager.

That EM period lead me to FEMA, where I work now.

Am officially a DAE (Disaster Assistance Employee) which simply means that I respond to disasters when called - and with all the disasters we've had and are continuing to have it could be a full-time job if I wanted to work that much (which I don't).

Am presently deployed to Des Moines to help out Iowa with the massive flooding they had this year.

After that....... off to somewhere else!
