Daniel Gonska - Connecticut Fire Photographers Association

Bio: I am a Firefighter/Paramedic with the City of Olean Fire Department in Olean, New York (Cattaraugus County) and have been on the job for 17 years. I have been around the fire service my entire life. My dad and uncle are Life Members with the Allegany Engine Company and my younger brother is an assistant chief with the Weston Mills Fire Department.

Emergency! was one of my favorite TV shows growing up. I always wanted to be like Johnny and Roy. I became a Basic EMT in the spring of 2000 and moved up through the ranks of the EMS world from Basic to Critical Care Tech finally to Paramedic. 

My dad is a professional photographer and taught me everything I know about photography. I would go to work with him and watch him develop and process film from start to finish.  I started my own business specializing in emergency services photography in 2013.  

Areas Covered: Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Allegany County
