Professional Service Since 1990 | CMC Since 1994


Fred has 33 years’ experience in the Fire/Rescue and Technical Rescue fields.  He started his career working as a full time industrial firefighter with the Chevron Corporation in Southern California for 7 years before moving to Colorado in 1997 to work as a municipal firefighter at the Colorado Springs Fire Department.

Currently a Fire Officer, Fred worked his way through the ranks as a firefighter to firefighter/paramedic.  He has been assigned to the department’s Hazardous Materials Program, High Angle Rescue Program, Tactical EMS Program, Wildland Program, and the Heavy Rescue Program.  He currently serves as a Medical Specialist  on COTF – 1, the Colorado based FEMA USAR team.  Fred’s agency, like most, is an All Hazards department.  Their Heavy Rescue Program deliver High Angle Rope Rescue, Confined Space Rescue, Collapse Rescue, Trench Rescue, Swift water Rescue, Ice Rescue, and Dive Rescue services to their community.

As a CMC Instructor, Fred has taught classes to the entertainment industry, as well as specialized contract rescue classes. He currently teaches the Rope Rescue Technician I/II/III, Confined Space Rescue, and Industrial Rescue classes, and is preparing to teach the REMS/Remote Rescue Workshop classes.

Fred sums up what he likes about teaching CMC Classes:  ” As a long time instructor, I am not only able to teach the curriculum that CMC has developed, but I am able to make adjustments based on the needs of the class.  My time with CMC and in the Technical Rescue world has allowed me to gain many different techniques and methods of rescue as well as develop various methods of instructional delivery.  When appropriate, i am able to bring these techniques  and methods into the classes I teach.  CMC has a tried-and-true curriculum that is easily reproduced during a rescue situation.  Rescues don’t happen every day, so teaching a skill set that is easily reproducible under pressure is of high importance to me.”
