Objective

I would like to be able to use my experience, knowledge, and training in any industry that fits

my attributes. I have attained good supervisory skills, communication skills, computer skills, and

other skills, while working in the fire service and in manufacturing industry.

Major

Accomplishments

---

My major accomplishments over my thirty year career include gaining supervisory skills,

reaching areas of education with the National Open Learning program through the University of

Memphis, establishing and maintaining a training bureau for the two fire departments that I

worked for, establishing and maintaining fire inspection bureaus in both of these departments. I

served on the TN Fire Safety Inspector’s Association’s board of directors for fourteen years, the

last four years, as vice-president of the association. I have sat on the NFPA Technical

Committees for NFPA 1001, 1002, and 1003, for four years. I was firefighter of the year in 1986.

Another accomplishment was for me to obtain my Emergency Medical Technician – IV

Certification while attending college full time and working full time. I became a Fire Service

Instructor through the TN Commission on Firefighting and worked as an instructor for the TN

Fire and Codes Academy for twenty-six years.

Experience

2009 – 2010 - Smith, Seckman, and Reid, Inc.

Life Safety Consultant

I analyzed the life safety plans for hospitals and recommended changes that would aid the

hospital in meeting the NFPA 101 codes and the Joint Commission regulations. I performed

Statement of Conditions fire inspections. I would then consult with the hospital facility directors

and advised them of my findings and recommendations.

1984 – 2009 TN Fire & Codes Academy, Bell Buckle, TN.

Fire Service Instructor

I taught classes in all areas of firefighting, rescue, officer courses, and other courses associated

with the fire service. I assisted in writing lesson plans and became familiar with most

audio/visual equipment.

2005 – 2009 Brighton Fire Departments

Captain

I responded to all emergency scenes, normally as the incident commander. This included fire,

rescue, hazardous materials incidents, and emergency medical situations. I used my supervisory

skills both on the emergency scenes and at the station. I established an inspection program and a

training program for this department. I would supervise from 5 employees to as many as 5 other

fire departments that we may have had on scene.

1979 – 2005 Covington Fire Departments

Captain

I was the shift commander on one shift, and had responsibility of two stations. I responded to all

emergency scenes as incident commander. I initiated and developed a training program and an

inspection program for the department. I started out as a volunteer firefighter in 1979 and

became a career firefighter in 1982. I worked my way through the ranks to captain. I was

responsible for the day to day operations of the department. I was training officer for twelve

years until I got my Fire Safety Inspector’s certification. I hold four certifications in fire

inspection.

1985 -1990 Craig’s Fire Extinguisher Sales and Service Company, Covington, TN

Owner

I bought the business in 1985. I spent $5000.00 on it. I kept the business until it got too large for

me to run it by myself part-time. I was still working at the fire department full time. Again, my

communication skills improved by meeting the public every day. I had the self-initiative to go

out and start a business from nothing. I worked the business hard for the next five years and sold

it for a nice profit.

1993-1998 Craig’s Pressure Washing Company. Covington, TN.

Owner

This is a business that I started from nothing. I bought two industrial pressure washers without

having any idea what I was going to do with them. During the next five years, the business was

grossing $50,000 annually. I worked with the public on a daily basis, giving me the opportunity

to develop skills needed to run a small business. I was working the business part-time and

working at the fire department full time. This venture showed me that I could take something I

knew nothing about and turn a profit like that in five years. I had to eventually sell the business

because I could not keep up with it on a part-time basis.

Nylon Net Company, Memphis, TN

Superintendent

I started with the company as a supervisor in the braiding section of the plant. After two years, I

was promoted to superintendent in the winding department. I had three supervisors that worked

for me and one hundred employees on three shifts that I was responsible for. I was responsible for

seeing that quality products were made and shipped to the warehouse. Production quotas were

met. I ordered raw materials for the department and helped establish a warehouse operation at

this facility.

1973 -1978 Charms Candy Company, Covington, TN

Supervisor

I started at Charms as a sanitation worker. After seven months, I was promoted to packaging

supervisor. I supervised forty personnel. I was responsible for production quotas and for quality

products being manufactured.

Education

1990-1994 University of Memphis

Bachelor of Professional Studies with two majors: Fire Administration / Fire Prevention

Technology

I lacked one English course from graduation and finishing my degree.

1972 – 1974 Dyersburg State Community College

Over the years, I took several courses from DSCC. I have 268 college credit hours total between the two

colleges.
