Michele Dyck is a Fire Apparatus Engineer with eight years of experience working for CAL FIRE. As an Engineer, Michele operates and maintains the apparatus and equipment, and manages emergency incidents including fires, cliff and water rescues, medical aids, and traffic collisions.
Ever since her first day in her basic Firefighter I Academy, Michele knew this is what she wanted to do and couldn't imagine doing anything else. She enjoys the diverse challenges faced everyday and the opportunity to help people in emergencies. She just recently transferred from a station in Paso Robles, where she predominantly fought wildfires, to Avila Beach, an area known for its dangerous cliff and water rescues. Michele is working hard to hone her water and cliff rescue technical skills so she can excel on calls within these challenging new conditions.
