Dave Pullen

William (Davey) Pullen began his 4WD hobby in 1987 with the purchase of a 1972 CJ-5 and began his love for 4WD adventure.

The same year he joined the Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company and has held officer positions and obtained certifications in firefighting, training, driver/operator, and emergency medicine.

This passion to help others led him to the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department and the University of Maryland where he obtained his degree in Fire Protection Engineering.

Dave has used his knowledge of fire and safety to help protect local and city governments, Marriott Hotels, and now our nation's veterans.

Becoming an I4WDTA Certified Trainer was the next step in teaching his love for off-road travel to those who have his same passion.
