Field Crew Leads
By area, this is a who's who of the teams in the field working with contractors on each job. (And yes, there's plans to get this motley, camera-shy crew photographed and photos posted... just can't promise how long that may take...)
San Francisco Bay Area
Dave is the lead for this service area.
Dave has been working with us since 2010, getting his feet wet (literally) during an 11-day job resulting from a fire pump failure. Dave also works in the other service areas as one of our trainers.
Paul still comes out of the office and into the field as well, and carrying the distinction of being the operator on our Job #1 back in 2007, and on many jobs since then.
When not pushing water, Paul is pushing paperwork for all insurance, invoicing, most marketing, and a host of other administrative tasks. Paul is also a member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), with a focus on NFPA 25 (Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of water-Based Fire Protection Systems) and NFPA 14 (Standard for the Installation of Standpipe and Hose Systems).
Sacramento / Central Valley
Mark is the lead for this service area, as well as covering the Fresno area as requests for service come to us.
Mark has been doing this work for far longer than the rest of us, and as a full-time firefighter/engineer, he also acts as a technical resource and subject matter expert when real world know-how is needed beyond what's found in the pages of NFPA standards.
Mark - and his location - is an independent contractor-operated team. The equipment and staffing he brings on-site varies from the other Company-managed locations, as does pricing, payment terms, insurance policies, etc.
Los Angeles / Orange Counties
Burt is the lead for this service area, as well as covering the San Diego area as requests for service come to us.
Burt has been with us since we began offering services to the 'Southland' in late 2014. On jobs that demand extra hands, he has a second-in-charge that joins him to get the job done.
Our services to the Fresno area are currently cross-staffed by the Sacramento / Central Valley and San Francisco Bay Area teams.
Our services to San Diego are currently staffed by the Los Angeles/Orange County team.
Las Vegas Metro
Our services in the Las Vegas metro area are planned to come online later in 2017.
Reno / Lake Tahoe / Sparks
Our services in the Reno, Sparks, and Lake Tahoe are planned to come online later in 2017. In the interim, jobs are staffed out of either the Bay Area or Central Valley locations.
