Interview: Chad Thieman, Mr. June 2017

This month we feature our very own Mr. June in the 2017 calendar, Chad Thieman. Chad has been a firefighter for over fourteen years. He is currently a firefighter for West Metro Fire after it merged with Wheat Ridge Fire.

His  journey as a firefighter came after wanting to be a cop up until high school. One of his friends was taking classes to become a firefighter, so he joined him and loved it.

Chad’s favorite part of being in the Colorado Firefighter Calendar is making so many new friends that all support a common cause. He states that he is a quiet person so he tried out for the calendar because it was something he would not normally do. Now he enjoys newfound friendships and raising money for the kids!

He has a very widespread method for staying in overall good health and calendar shape. He does crossfit and weight lifting, along with eating healthy and staying away from sugar as best he can.

Chad’s hero is his dad because he has always (and continues) to work hard for his family and would do anything for people in need!

Thank you to Chad for his participation in the 2017 Colorado Firefighter Calendar! We appreciate your efforts and your time in raising much needed funds for the Children’s Hospital Colorado Burn Center and Burn Camp Programs!

The Colorado Firefighter Calendar is a group effort and without the help and support of hundreds of great people it would not be possible.
