Hang a Right

David Weiss ’92 (B.B.A.) has been a firefighter for nine years, the last six with the Westminster Fire Department in Colorado. In addition to his title as firefighter/engineer, he’s also a fire investigator who determines whether fires are accidental or due to arson. For the last year, Weiss has driven the department’s 64,000-pound, 40-foot-long ladder truck. He says the biggest challenge is making right turns without slamming into corners, curbs, cars or people. “I haven’t had an accident yet,” quips Weiss, who admits his co-workers constantly tease him because his “other vehicle” is a relatively tiny 2000 Volkswagen Jetta.
