Hi, I’m Lisa!
Firefighter roots run deep in my world. I grew up in the home of a Schaumburg firefighter. Living the 24 hours on, 48 hours off was the way of life and considered normal in my childhood home. My dad worked at the firehouse and then came home and went to work at his side job. Continuing the family legacy, my brother became a firefighter early on in his adult life. Though I wasn’t looking for this lifestyle, it found me and I am proud to say that I am the wife of a Palatine Firefighter/Paramedic.
My career has primarily been in the health and wellness industry. And as many firefighters do, my husband Albert works a second job to help supplement our families income. Most firefighters work a 24 on 48 off shift which gives them time on their days off to do other work. Many have chosen to be entrepreneurs and have their own companies.
I came up with the idea to build a platform where people can find local firefighters who offer valuable services on their days off from the firehouse. Just like when they are on an emergency call, firefighters continue to offer service and professionalism when performing their secondary jobs. With this concept and Albert’s support, Hire Firefighter was born!
Thanks for checking it out!
