Lieutenant Tressa Miller, Lane Fire Authority, Veneta, Oregon
“I make a great spokesperson. Heck yeah! I started riding my bike because of a firefighter. Each department is different. Some will say no but that’s O.K., because others will say yes. Sometimes it may be the local hospital or police agency who wants to provide bicycle safety education.” Tress and YES first met in 1995 when I was first starting the bicycle education program in Los Angeles Unified School District. She introduce YES to BMX and then left to pursue her other love to become a fire fighter. Now many years later she is a Lieutenant with the Lane Fire Authority and in 2017 she qualify as a rider at the BMX World Cup. Many professionals have the safety of our children in hand when riding a bicycle: teachers, police, firefighters, cycling coaches and more. Bmxngirl@aol.com
