Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

There are many important, and really fun hands on, lets get sweaty and dirty while you learn the things that will save lives in the field classes available at FDIC.
However, no matter what your rank or department size or type, I invite you to also take some time to join me in a late afternoon class to sit back and relax in an Air Conditioned class room before cocktails and dinner to learn about the facts of life in the fire service today.
I promise to present what you and your department really needs to know and do to get the support and funds that it requires to get the tools, training and personnel to do the job every day.
This class is important for those at every rank in your department including fire chief and union leadership and volunteers.
The Fire Chief's Tool Box
Thursday, April 10, 2008: 1530-1715 in room 202-203.
 How the “System” REALLY works
 How to Make the “System” work for your department
 How to get the budget your department really needs

I will also be signing copies of my book The Fire Chief’s Tool Box at the Fire Engineering Books and Videos booth during FDIC.
Stay safe and see you at FDIC
