Meet Golden Valley Firefighter Dave Comb

Dave Comb saw the Golden Valley Fire Department as a way to get involved in the community. His main concern: Would they be interested in someone over 40?

They were, and 17 years later he still enjoys the pride, accomplishment, and camaraderie that comes from working with a team dedicated to a worthwhile goal.

He also learned new skills, cemented friendships, and maintained a sense of vitality he says results from being with people of all ages and backgrounds.

"The fire service has done for me more than I could ever have imagined," Comb adds.
