Looking for personal experiences/stories of how Tom Brennan inspired, lead, or taught you about firefighting. From Random Thoughts, to war stories of the hey day in Brooklyn's Nut House, to growing up in his household.
Just dropping a note that our Station is again sending three people to FDIC this year. After last year's incredible experience that I was fortunate to be a part of, myself along with the other two who attended strongly believe in the huge benefits of FDIC. The training & networking are second to none, one of the greatest thrills of my life was seeing & hearing Bobby Halton & Chief Billy Goldfeder speak. Our people came back better firefighter's because of FDIC & knowledge passed on to us.
Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
Was proud to say how much I enjoyed FDIC this year & the tremendous knowledge I received from the numerous classroom sessions I attended. If you get the chance-GO!
It was the best experience I have have had.
