In May of 2003 I joined the Speedway Fire Department in Speedway, IN, home of the Indianapolis 500. Speedway is a small town located within Indianapolis city limits. The department itself is a small 35 person department, with two houses. We currently operate with an engine company, a ladder company and a rescue squad. In 2008 I was promoted to Engineer. I am currently an Engineer on the squad on C shift.
I have since worked to help other people do the same. As a Peer Fitness Trainer (PFT) I am a certified personal trainer, with an IAFF endorsement to work with firefighters to prepare them to be fit for duty. I’ve also created fit2fightfire.com with plans for it to become a mult-dimensional resource for firefighter fitness and health.
