Professional Service Since 2001 | CMC Since 2014


Dan has 22 years’ experience in the fire rescue/technical rescue fields.  He got his start by looking into the FBI and possibly becoming a police officer, when he had an opportunity to do a 24 hour ride along at a local fire department. Within the first 20 minutes at that station, he was hooked.  He knew it was exactly what he wanted to do for a profession and career.

Dan is a Captain/Paramedic and a USAR Coordinator for the Glendale Fire Department in Glendale, CA.  He is a HAZMAT Specialist, and is REMS qualified.  He also is a California State Fire Instructor for Rope Awareness/Operations, Rope Rescue Technician, Confined Space Rescue Technician, Structural Collapse Specialist 1 and 2, Trench Rescue Technician, and Firefighter Survival Specialist.
