Ryan Sanders started his career at TDFPD in 2006 as one of the very first employees hired for the Fuels Management program. It was a seasonal position and Sanders returned every year there after advancing from a crew member to a squad leader in 2009. In 2010 he was accepted into paramedic school with REMSA and was awarded a TDFPD scholarship for the program. He continued to work part-time with the Zephyr Crew as much as his school schedule would permit, and was promoted to the position of full-time firefighter/paramedic in 2013. Sanders just completed an engineer program which included a task book, written exams, arduous skills testing and an interview to earn a promotion to Engineer. Sanders is a second generation firefighter as his father, Glenn Sanders, retired from TDFPD as an Engineer after a 34 year career with the fire district.
Sanders and his wife Krysi are the proud parents of a baby boy, Sawyer. Congratulations to Engineer Sanders on his promotion and fatherhood!
