From the Instructor:
My name is Chief Rob Dahl, I live in Longview, WA. After a great fire service career, I now work for METRO at the Oregon Zoo where I am the Occupational Health & Safety Manager. I have extensive training and experience in public safety, serving over 35 years with roles in Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, Rescue and 9-1-1 Communications.

I look forward to meeting you all in class online and to seeing you on Cascade Campus.
