Western States Fire Protection Veteran Application
After returning home, after two years I was lucky to find my new permanent home here at WSFP. Shortly after being here only six to eight months Uncle Sam called me to go back. This time as an instructor for counter IED’s and driving tactics. The folks here at home were so very much supportive as I did my last tour for my country. Now back for good I can’t see myself working anyplace else. I have so much support in my growth from the guys in the field to all my peers here in the office. I really do love coming to work and this is the first time I have ever been able to say this. When I started here I was just pulling orders and driving them out to various job sites. Now I am in charge of all tool purchases and fleet service tracking. I would like to thank Western States Fire Protection for giving us Vets a place to call home and for working at the best place this Vet protected with his life.
In my travels with WSFP I have had a lot of Veterans work for me. Again, I want to thank all for your service to our great county. I now have a foreman on one of my projects working for WSFP that has been called back for his 6th tour of duty. Gabe was promoted to Senior Chief Petty Office, of the United State Navy and joined Western States Fire Protection in January of 2014. He has been a member of Sprinkler Fitters Local 483, San Francisco Bay Area since 1994. His wife of 22 years is Candace. He has three children, an 18 year old son, a 12 year old daughter and an 11 year old son. Gabe mentioned to me that the eldest son has enlisted in the Navy and is following in his father’s footsteps. Candace and Gabe are very proud of him for enlisting in the US Nary. We at WSFP are proud too. In the little time that I have spent with Gabe, he has ALL the qualities that I look for in a foreman. I quickly recognized that Gabe has and carries out all of WSFP Core Values: Integrity, Quality, Safety, Professionalism, and Commitment. All of our employees that have been around Gabe respect and give him all 100%. This is truly a quality that everyone should set their bars life for. Thank you Gabe for your service at WSFP and to our great country. I hope that this is your last deployment and a safe one. God wisdom and speed,
