Nathan was hired on at Sycuan Fire Department in 1999 as part of the Golden Eagle Hotshot Handcrew. In 2000, he moved from the handcrew to the engine company where he assumed firefighter duties. Nathan found his way to Lakeside as part of the Lakeside-Viejas contract for fire services in 2002.

The process to promote to fire engineer includes a comprehensive written and manipulative exam that validates their ability to operate under numerous emergency situations. 

Currently, Nathan is assigned to Station #3 (Lake Jennings Fire Station) on A-Division.

Congratulations Nate...!
