Tyler is 22 years old. He has lived in Callaway all his life with his parents and 2 sisters. He joined the fire department around the same time he graduated from high school. He said, “It was something I had wanted to do my entire life.” Needless to say, he fell in love with the fire service and hasn’t looked back. Currently Tyler is a Lieutenant with Henry Volunteer Fire Department and runs calls for Callaway Volunteer Fire Department and Callaway Volunteer Rescue Squad. Tyler is a career firefighter with the Danville Fire Department. He says, “Becoming a firefighter was probably the best thing I ever did; I have learned so much and made a lot of great friends. It is the only job I've ever had that came easy to me.” In the little spare time he has, Tyler enjoys spending time with his girlfriend Samantha, who is also with Henry Volunteer Fire Department, and being in the woods hunting.
