Gregg is director, North American sales at Waterous Company where he has worked for 28 years. He has been in the fire service for 31 years in Minnesota, serving as a firefighter, engineer, and chief. He is involved in FAMA and is the chair of the membership committee and the foam technical committee.

Members of the Fire Apparatus Manufacturers’ Association (FAMA) are experts at building big trucks with big horsepower and big water flow. These capabilities are exactly what the fire service needs for putting out big fires. It is not, however, what you either need or want for testing hose, nozzles, and couplings.
