As the owner, he started Alternating Currents as a side job from his full-time firefighter and paramedic position. It soon became a central focus, and was able to balance both jobs he loves since both help people. He recently retired from his firefighter position. He is passionate about safety, so keeping his staff and customers from harm are essential. Our projects are always completed properly, accurately, and safely. From checking for smoke detectors and CO2 monitors to exit signs, all jobs are completed without cutting corners. You will see Marty at estimates and project management. “Our customers regard us as a ‘white glove service,’ which we strive to uphold daily,” Marty says.
