A resident of the Kansas City area, Josh most recently served as a firefighter with the Lee’s Summit, Missouri fire department. He previously served four years as a firefighter with the Sedalia, Missouri fire department.

After growing up in Protection, Kansas, Josh earned Fire 1 and 2 and Hazmat certificates from Johnson County Community College before completing his Associate of Arts degree in Fire Administration from Penn Foster College.

Josh has been married for four years to his wife, Adrianne, and for fun he enjoys running with his dog. He recently completed his first half-marathon. He also presently serves in the Air Force Reserves with the 442nd Fighter Wing based at Whiteman Air Force Base near Sedalia.

While he is diving in to learning as much as he can about fire safety codes and inspection procedures, Josh is looking forward to his new career with OSFM. “I’m happy to have a position that will enable me to be on-the-go and I’m looking forward to being able to inspect different kinds of businesses.”
