Captain Don is a 20-year fire veteran and currently serves as a Fire Captain and Paramedic. During a service trip abroad in 2004, Captain Don was frustrated by the lack of equipment & training available to firefighters abroad. So he started working on a new calling: Global Mission Readiness. Using their own time off, money, and equipment, Don and his team of 60 volunteers has traveled to 12 countries to complete 21 missions. Each year, this team of firefighters, EMS personnel, Nurses and … teach tens of thousands of people the art of being a firefighter. The nonprofit operates solely on donations and also teaches first aid, specialty rescue and preparedness- with a strong emphasis on self-reliance.
