He is a Certified Smoke Diver and became one of the department’s nationally registered paramedics in 2014.  Jack is a Captain on B Shift at Station 1 and mentors many of the new firefighters that are eager to learn from him and model their career after his. Jack’s greatest mentor is his father, Pearl Fire Department retiree Captain Bill Readman. Bill was with the Pearl Fire Department for over 28 years and was one of the original 12 firefighters hired in the city of Pearl.  Jack also has a younger brother Andrew who is currently a firefighter with the Pearl Fire Department on C Shift.
