Name: Nate Brown
Title: Driver / EMT
Years of Service: 2011 to present
Hometown and Years in Teton Valley: Cattaraugus, NY; Lived in Teton Valley since 2008
Personal Details (family and hobbies): I have an amazing wife and an incredible son. We enjoy living in this valley for the outdoor lifestyle that it offers. As a family, we enjoy hiking, fishing, skiing, and surfing (while in warmer climates.) Basically, we enjoy anything that gets us outside.
Why did you want to become a firefighter?: I can remember as a child the fire department coming to our school and dressing up in their bunker gear, and taking us out to see the engine. I was in awe and knew that’s what I wanted to be when I grew up. Well after growing up, I’m finally able to fulfill my childhood dream. To be in a position to help people in need, and provide a service to my community is something that I’m proud to do.
