Michael has known since he was a little boy that he wanted to be a firefighter/EMT. Since the first moment he stepped on a fire truck he began training for the future. He joined the Junior Firefighters in Belgrade, has passed several Firefighter and EMT courses, and is enrolled at Southern Maine Community College in the Fire and Science course. At only 18 years old, he is apart of the Belgrade and Oakland stations and is a live in at the Windham fire house. Each day Michael checks his equipment and trains to help better himself in the job he has always wanted to do to help protect his community.
