Ryan Smith will be joining Vantage Point Consulting as an Emergency Preparedness Specialist with his role in DeKalb County Health Department.  Ryan has 23 years of fire service experience and currently holds the rank of Captain for the Fort Wayne Fire Department. 

Over the past seven years, Ryan has led both the Dive team and the technical rescue team in some capacity for the Fort Wayne Fire Department.  Ryan also assists with safety team functions at FDIC (Fire Department Instructors Conference) each year and enjoys learning the new methods and techniques. Ryan also is an Extra Class Amateur Radio Operator and has assisted in planning simulated emergency training exercises. 

In his spare time, Ryan enjoys camping with his wife of 20 years and 2 sons.  The Smith sons are involved in a lot of things including Boy Scouts which Ryan and his wife are leaders. 

Ryan enjoys spending time with family on campouts and other outings. Both sons play soccer, therefore Ryan spends a lot of time at the pitch as well. Ryan has enjoyed watching his sons grow and develop their soccer skills over the years. Ryan also dives as much as he finds time with Shipwrecks as his favorite dives.  

Ryan, welcome to the VPC Team. We are excited to have you as part of the team!
