Hi! My name is Julian Serrano.
I am the Founder of Prepared To Fight Fire and an active firefighter, Florida Smoke Diver, RIT competitor, junior fire instructor, resident paramedic for The MDK Project, certified fitness coach, entrepreneur, and ultra runner.
While I’m proud of my accolades, they fail to acknowledge all of the challenges and setbacks I have overcome throughout the last 9 years of my career.
Before I became the firefighter I am today, I was overweight and out of shape, but that didn't stop me from chasing after my dream of becoming a firefighter.
I told all my friends and family that the Fire Academy would "be a breeze" and that I’d be the next “top dog” of my class...
In a matter of weeks, I ate my words.
