I began my career as a volunteer at the Albertville Fire Department in 1986 and then was hired full time on October 11, 1987. I attended the very first fire school held at Albertville in April of 1988. Halfway through fire school I enrolled at Gadsden State Community College to obtain my Intermediate license. I would go to fire schools during the day and E.M.T. school at night. Upon the retirement of Guy Campbell I was promoted to Fire Marshal. During this time I graduated from the Alabama Criminal Justice and Peace Office Academy in Selma Alabama. After about two years I returned to shifts as a firefighter. In 1992 I was promoted to Lieutenant. In September of 2003 I was promoted to the rank of Captain. After serving 11 years as Shift Captain, I was promoted to Assistant Chief/Fire Marshal in January 2015.
I have been married to the former Tammy McCreless since April 11, 1987. We have two children Emily(22) and Carson(19). We are members of Southside Baptist Church. I like to spend my spare time with my family and I also like to hunt and play golf.
