Second generation Tampa firefighter honored by sister for First Responder Friday this week. Chris has been a firefighter for 19 years. Chris’ dad also worked for Tampa Fire Rescue, so when Chris turned 18 he started his journey to become a firefighter.

Chris’ sister, Lisa, says that Chris is her best friend and they like to go hunting an fishing when they get together. Lisa tells us what makes Chris great at his job, “He’s a go getter. He doesn’t like to say no and if he can’t accomplish what he wants to do then he’s going to find a way to make it work.”
