"I have personally known Chuck for twenty plus years as related to the fire service. Chuck is held in high regard throughout the San Diego County Fire Prevention Officers group as well as the Fire Marshal’s. He has shown to be an asset to all by his extensive knowledge of codes and his selfless help he contributes to these groups. I recently had the pleasure of attending a Hazardous Materials class that he taught to the Fire Prevention Officers in Poway and it was very well put together. This subject matter isn’t the most stimulating; however, Chuck made the class very interesting with his visual presentation along with a complimentary summary of the presentation. More often than not, instructors get caught up in reading the slides on a power point presentation and it becomes very boring. Those who attended Chuck’s class felt exactly the opposite. I have heard other positive comments about Chuck’s classes as well."
