Veteran Fire Corps Team 1 Corps Members- John Cargill


Hello everybody, my name is John Cargill. I am excited to be a part of the SCA Veteran Fire Corps. A little bit about myself: I am from Rochester NY and I am 26 years old. I have a degree in Natural Resources Conservation Law Enforcement and a certificate in Criminal Justice as well as training in wildland fire suppression from Finger Lakes, a 2 year school in the State University of New York system. From there, I went to SUNY Maritime, the New York State Merchant Marine Academy. I went there from Marine Environmental Science and a Coast Guard 3rd Mates license. I was in the DOC program for the Coast Guard to be a Marine Science Technician, but as circumstances would provide, I ended up in the Army as a Chemical Specialist. I have also been a Maine State tour leader and camp counselor and had a similar experience, and I also have done volunteer firefighting. I enjoy lifting weights, playing lacrosse, hockey, and rugby. I want to be a conservation police officer, which is a large reason why I am here. I really want to make friends and hopefully get a foot in the door for a career!
