He is also one of only a handful of county firefighters certified by the state as an instructor.

Schmid and his wife Katie have two young boys.

They include John Hawkins, Michael Hawkins, Nick Kaiser, Kevin Mornroy, Dutch Morrison, Dony Sawchuk, Alexander Solovieff and Cristina Weinberg.

Cassou took it upon herself to reach out to retired firefighters, spouses of firefighters and other members of the general public to join this specialized team of fire support professionals. Through her efforts, these members became registered as county disaster service workers, allowing them to respond to emergencies in other jurisdictions around the county.
