Comments: Dallas Fire Rescue Members
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for allowing me the opportunity to work alongside of you for nearly 29 years. I have visited other departments and met many other firefighters from across the country and I can say that we agree that DFR is one of the best from top to bottom.
I am grateful for the opportunities that the department has provided and I encourage each and every one of you to take advantage of opportunities for your professional development. If you are met with challenges along the way, be assured that overcoming them will prepare you for the future.
July 19, 2022 will be my last day on the books. I am planning a retirement party and hope to see many of you there. It is time for me to make room for up and coming talent and share what I have learned as I lead the Orlando Fire Department. Once again, Thank you, it has been a pleasure.
