Because of that show, Randy became one of those individuals who could move back and forth between two worlds - one, a world of "make believe" and the other, a world of hard-core reality -- and be as at home in one as he is in the other.
Today, thirty years and many acting credits later, he is still known as the most recognized fire fighter in America. Randy is one of the very few civilians who has earned the privilege of being embraced as "one of their own" by the brotherhood of fire fighters from Los Angeles to New York and all points in between.
Randy is as close to an icon as anyone has ever become for our nations emergency responders. He is one of the most respected and sought-after speakers at fire and emergency medical service conferences in the country, making as many as twenty presentations a year when his professional career permits.
