Mike created Maltese Solutions to use his knowledge and experience to work with other first responder agencies to help their websites deliver the right message.

Mike started programming computers back in 1984. After serving in the Army as a medic, Mike continued to build his desire to program by creating server-side programs in Perl, CGI and Python while working full-time as a Paramedic. In 1997 Mike was hired as a career firefighter. Working for the fire department did not deter his love for computers and programming. Mike continued programming and developing websites working for local internet hosting companies.

During his career in the fire department, Mike worked in every division and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Fire Administration and finally was promoted to the rank of Fire Chief. As a firefighter, paramedic and fire chief officer for both career and volunteer fire departments, Mike brings a vast array of experience from operations to administration.
