I first met Mo in the late 1980s. He was teaching a class of new fire recruits at the Ontario Fire Department training center. My fellow inspectors and I attended the concealed weapons part of the class. Mo and I became good friends following that class. At that same time, Mo was head of the fire science program at Mount San Antonio College. I was a graduate of that program in 1989. Thank you Mo for all you have done for the fire service and the knowledge and safety of others. You are greatly missed.
