He has certified yearly in Trailing since 2016 and Land Cadaver since 2018. Calvin has a great work ethic and will continue working until the job is done. 2020 or 2021 may bring Hobbes, a little brother for Calvin.

Calvin has secret dreams of being a Fireman. He would love to drive the back of the Hook and Ladder Truck and if that doesn’t work out he would like to fly in a helicoptor.
