Nicolas Romero

Berkeley Fire Department Nicolas Romero graduated from LMC’s Fire Academy in 2008. Within four months of completing the program, he was hired by the Berkeley Fire Department. “During my search for an academy, I found LMC’s academy to give a wide range of experience, both hands-on and in a classroom setting. The academy appeared rigid and very structured. This kind of setting was very appealing to me and fit my expectations. I’m glad I picked this line of work. I feel this literally is one of the few jobs in the world where you can have an immediate influence in someone's life and help them, on just about every level, in their time of need. It is the best job in the world and I wouldn't want to do anything else!”
