Immediate Past President Edward Bonollo addresses the general membership at the 2012 Annual General Meeting in Hood River, Oregon.
I am currently employed as a career firefighter/paramedic with an additional assignment as a fire investigator with Columbia River Fire and Rescue (St. Helens/Rainier area.) I am very proud of the fact that the majority of my fire investigation training and education opportunities have been obtained by regularly attending our Chapter's Annual Training Conferences.
I have been a member of the Oregon Chapter since my inception into our fire investigation industry since 1999. In 2006, the general members gave me the opportunity to lead by electing me onto the Oregon Chapter 31-IAAI Board of Directors.
During the last seven (7) years while serving on our Chapter's Board of Directors, I was properly mentored by Past Presidents Mark Carman, John Wolff, Ann Lewis, Denise Shew, Susan Maniscalco, Mo Austin, and Edward Bonollo. These individuals have collectively provided me with the skill set to effectively govern our organization for my 2012 - 2013 term.
My wife Monique, daughters Jasmine, Arianna, and Jacquelyn live in Warren, Oregon.
