Meet a Fire Dept. Captain: Matthew Boulden


Introducing… Matthew J. Boulden

A graduate of … Brighton High School

Now working as … An Fire Department Captain and Paramedic

For … Murray City.

American National Government was his favorite high school class because … he had a great teacher (thank you, Coach Chavis) who held students accountable for everything they did.

Mathew’s first job – was a Ranch Hand.

The worst job?  Runner for a law firm. What made it unpleasant was working with people who had high opinion of themselves for reasons not apparent to anyone else!

Advice to students … ”Be accountable for your actions, learn how to get along with others, and be willing to put in a hard day’s work without complaint … and – never settle for average!”

And more …

  • What Matthew finds most fulfilling about his job is that he has the chance of “working with dedicated people, willing to put their lives on the line in order to save a complete stranger.”
