Hello,
New to this forum but not to prepping. I was invited by Dave from the GLock forum. I retired from federal law enforcement after a 35 yr career. Looking forward to learning and passing on whatever I can that may help.

Greetings from the sunny central coast of California.  I'm not really a "Prepper" per se, but I spent the last 6 years of my career as a disaster planner for my community.  Started as a Reserve Firefighter in 1973, promoted to full-time Engineer in 1976, progressed up through the ranks and retired (the first time) in 2007 as Division Chief/Fire Marshal/Disaster Manager.  During that time I also served as a CA POST certified Level I Reserve Police Officer for 16 years.

After I retired, I spent about a year as a Safety Manager for a construction company.  Got a call from a former co-worker who was a City Council member at a neighboring City and he wanted me to be the city's Interim Fire Chief.  That later became a permanent position.  The community was very small (population 5,000) and I ended up being Fire Chief, Code Enforcement Manager, Building/Planning Manager and was twice appointed Acting City Manager.  After 4 years, our retirement system decided that I was violating their rules so I had to "Retire" again (both cities had the same retirement system CalPERS).

I enjoy off-road driving in my '46 CJ2A, hunting, hanging with my 7 grandkids and traveling a little.

I look forward to learning more about survival and preparedness here and thank you for having me here.
