Curtis Crabtree believes in giving back to his community, which is why he joined the Comstock Fire Department in 2015.
He was not someone who grew in the fire service tradition, but was inspired by classmates at Kalamazoo Valley Community College who attended the paramedic program. He himself went on to earn certification in Firefighter I and II, Hazmat Operations, and EMT-P, among other courses.
Curtis has previously served as an EMT and paramedic for the greater Kalamazoo community, as well as a paramedic for Battle Creek. He follows the simple yet powerful tenet that you must treat every person with the same dignity, respect, compassion, and professionalism that you would want them to give you or your family.
