I am a twelve-year veteran of the Waterbury Fire Department Local #1339 in Waterbury, Connecticut. I am assigned to Truck 1 on the C-shift. I am a second generation firefighter. My father is a retired captain of the WFD. He came on the job in 1968 and spent 31 years with the WFD. He is now the pipe major for the Connecticut Firefighters Pipes and Drums. I was the webmaster for their website for 10 years. For my work on their website, they have made me an Honorary Pipe Major. You can visit their website here.
My cousin, Kevin McDonald, was also a member of the WFD. He was a founding member of our rescue company. They are trained
in hazmat rescue, high angle rescue, cold water rescue, extrication, and other specialized areas. Unfortunately, Kevin lost his life
in an off-duty accident in October of 2000. To honor him, I have created a memorial page and photo gallery for him. You can visit these
pages in the
section. You can also purchase memorial t-shirts and reflective helmet stickers on these pages. All proceeds go to the McDonald
Family Fund for Kevin's wife and two children. My wife and I named our son, who was born in June of 2001, after Kevin.
Take a look around, and please come back soon.
