In July 1994 I enlisted in the US Army as Paratrooper. Within my first year, I found a love for running Radios and Field phones. While on active duty I had the opportunity to assist with a few tornados and flood response. After I left active duty, I enlisted in the Florida National Guard so I could continue running Military radios. I ended up getting my Amateur radios license in 2001. Having responded to several hurricanes and wildfires along with being a Special Operation Fire Fighter Paramedic from 2001 to 2006. I was asked to teach for a company call Rescue Training Consultants as a Communications SME. When Rescue Training Associates dissolved I stated Disaster and Tactical Communications, LLC A veteran-owned small business. I was able to get the company approved by the Florida State Fire College for CEU’s and Technical certification. We have proved course for the REACT center in Wisconsin, Multiple Florida Taskforce, The Carolinas Taskforces and some Georgia SWAT teams.
