Michelle Vasquez-Herrera Firefighter

Firefighter Engineer

Michelle Vasquez-Herrera is a career firefighter engineer with more than 16 years under her belt.

She says you must be willing to work hard, be physically fit, and react at a moment’s notice. Michelle says more of their calls are for medical emergencies than for fires themselves so they are all EMT certified in addition to their firefighting training.

Michelle has some great advice for young women, and for us all really:

Draw a map of your life, but do it in pencil.

Wise words from a woman who has crafted a life and career that works for her, her firefighting husband, and their two daughters.

Philanthropy

Michelle has donated her time and resources to the Girl Scouts as a troop leader, Fill the Boot for MDA and Firefighter Random Acts.
