From the TEEX Mailbox

“I would like to take this time to thank you all. I want to thank all of you who have helped along this journey of becoming a firefighter. After testing for various departments I had four job offers after passing my (psychological) testing, background, and oral interviews. I decided to accept a position as a Firefighter with the Department of Energy at a Waste Isolation Pilot Plant Nuclear Facility in Carlsbad New Mexico. I would especially like to thank Dr. Cowen, and Chief Jason Loyd who I have not just thought of as instructors, but as mentors in this profession I have chosen. You gentlemen, are the example of what I aspire to be in my fire service career.”

~ Firefighter Lucas Messer
