The Journey Dan wears many hats, including Provo Fire Captain and paramedic, Utah Fire & Rescue Academy Wildland Coordinator, Utah County Wildland Firefighter, husband and father. This Montana native dedicates his life to the two things he loves: fighting fires and his family. Dan went to California this past year to fight flames. When Dan isn’t spending time with his first two loves, you’ll find him in a remote mountain area fishing at a lake.

Road Blocks “I was involved in a head-on car collision more than four years ago. I didn’t know if I was going to have a full recovery. I was scared. I didn’t know how I was going to take care of my family and the career I loved.”

Mile Markers “It doesn’t matter where I’m at, firefighters are firefighters and we are like a family. I’ve trained thousands of firefighters.”

Must-Haves “A pocket knife, a challenge coin (I designed the one for Provo Fire) and a military can opener, which I’ve carried ever since I was 18 years old.”
