He was hired by the Mechanical Department in 1975 and worked on small engines and chainsaws for the off-highway shop. In 1981 he began working for the Transmission Shop where he repaired and rebuilt automatic transmissions.
In 1995, Michael transferred into the Fire Department where he has repaired small engines, pilot and relief valves, brake calipers, 6 speed transmissions, and fire pump valves.
