Paul an Extra Class licensee has a number of impressive credentials. Paul grew up in Auburn, NH serving as a Red Cross instructor and volunteer on the Greater Manchester Chapter’s Disaster Team while still in high school. He started his life-long journey into public safety in 1980 serving in several official operational and leadership positions over the past few decades, including as Auburn’s EMD for several years. To date, Paul has completed over two dozen FEMA emergency management courses.

Paul has been “on the air” in his various professional roles for over forty years. Emergency planning and tactical communications are in his “wheelhouse,” and he thrives on regular contact with the public, colleagues and served agency representatives in both collaborative and educational roles. He has been active with the Greater Nashua County ARES Group serving as an AEC (3 years) coordinating activities for the area that has since become the Greater Manchester ARES Group. Presently, he is a member of the Auburn Fire Department and a member of the Granite State Amateur Radio Association and the Merrimack Valley Amateur Radio Association, Inc., Paul looks forward to working with his fellow EC’s for a smooth transition bringing Greater Manchester ARES back into its own.
