About Us

Shawn McDonald
     My name is Shawn McDonald. I am the webmaster here at I am solely responsible for designing, editing, and managing the content of this website. It was started in October of 2000 and is fast becoming a very popular website. Presently, this site is comprised of over 1,100 pages, and is doing over 150,000 page views per month. For advertising information click here.

Webmaster in Action      I am a twelve-year veteran of the Waterbury Fire Department Local #1339 in Waterbury, Connecticut. I am assigned to Truck 1 on the C-shift. I am a second generation firefighter. My father is a retired captain of the WFD. He came on the job in 1968 and Waterbury Fire Department Local #1339 spent 31 years with the WFD. He is now the pipe major for the Connecticut Firefighters Pipes and Drums. I was the webmaster for their website for 10 years. For my work on their website, they have made me an Honorary Pipe Major. You can visit their website here.

Kevin McDonald      My cousin, Kevin McDonald, was also a member of the WFD. He was a founding member of our rescue company. They are trained in hazmat rescue, high angle rescue, cold water rescue, extrication, and other specialized areas. Unfortunately, Kevin lost his life in an off-duty accident in October of 2000. To honor him, I have created a memorial page and photo gallery for him. You can visit these Shawn, Cheryl, Kevin, and Lauren pages in the Fallen Brothers section. You can also purchase memorial t-shirts and reflective helmet stickers on these pages. All proceeds go to the McDonald Family Fund for Kevin's wife and two children. My wife and I named our son, who was born in June of 2001, after Kevin.

So thanks for stopping by.
Take a look around, and please come back soon.
