Using his background to benefit the next generation of heroes, Captain Dave created The Hero School as a way for women and men to get fire service mentoring.
"All great people had mentors; they're inseparable nor hard to spot. It comes down to being either
1. the uncoachable-loner who never impresses, or
2. the highly prized & Prepared One. Don't suck at it: get a coach." Captain Dave
His skills as a first-out emergency responder in northern California encompass all aspects of the fire service including bargaining unit representation, disciplinary defense, elections and unlawful employment practices up to--and including--PERB citations, workers' compensation injuries, Federal Discrimination/Harassment lawsuit filings, grievances and even lobbying against guns in fire stations.
If you want to be in the fire service, The Hero School is your best choice. Are you ready?
