My name is Melvyn Y. Little, Jr., I am the previous Co-owner and COO of Safety-Net, LLC after serving twenty five years with the Louisville Fire Department. Within those twenty five years I rose to the rank of captain, which came with the responsibility of quick decision making, supervising personnel, and overseeing a firehouse. The last four years of my career I served as the CPR Coordinator for the Louisville Fire Department where I supervised several employees, oversaw a $150,000 department budget, scheduled and taught weekly CPR classes.

I am a Louisville native and 1984 graduate of Louisville Male High School, I’m also a former member of the Kentucky National Guard serving from 1984-92. I am passionate about teaching and helping people which led to being co-owner of Safety Net, LLC.
