About The Hazmat Guys:
Bobby Salvesen is a loving husband and father of two with a passion for teaching. His firefighting journey began in 1994 when he joined the East Meadow Volunteer Fire Department. In 2000, he was hired by the FDNY. He spent a short time in Ladder 159 before moving over to Squad 288 after 9/11, where he remained for the next 13 years. During this time, he became certified in high-angle rope rescue, collapse, confined space, rigging, extrication, diving, shoring, and firefighter removal. After his tenure in the rescue branch of the FDNY, he transferred to the Hazardous Materials Command, and in 2015, he attained his Hazardous Materials Specialist certification.
Currently, Bobby is a member of the NY-TFI FEMA resource as a specialist. He’s been a Deputy Chief instructor for the Nassau County Fire Service Academy for the last nine years and has taught everything from Hazardous Materials to Confined Spaces.
Mike Monaco is a loving father of three with a gift for teaching dry topics and making them interactive and entertaining. He joined the fire service in 1997 as a volunteer firefighter for Mt. Sinai Fire Department. Eventually, he became a career firefighter with the FDNY, as well as an A.L.S. (Advanced Life Support) provider in 2002. For two years he served in Engine 233 until joining Hazmat Company 1 in 2004 where he became a Hazardous Materials Technician. In 2008, he started teaching, and in 2012, he became a local instructor with the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF).
