Ryan got his start in Emergency Services following in both his parents footsteps back in 2002, joining the Hampton Fire Company. Since that time he has served many, many departments, in several states, including the Milford-Holland Rescue Squad, Hampton Emergency Squad, East Whitehouse Fire Department, St Lukes EMS, Hunterdon Medical Center Security, and the list can continue.

In his spare time, the few moments he isn't working, Ryan enjoys spending time with his son Chase traveling to street fairs, race tracks, backyard farming and camping.
We welcome Ryan back to the full time team, now as an officer here at SBES!
