Sylvain Pedneault

Having discovered the domain of firefighting through photography in 2002, I founded FireLens.com as well as many other related projects over the years. I eventually became a firefighter, then promoted lieutenant, and finally captain. I also specialize in firefighter health and safety. In other words, I keep busy! ;)
