I will be attending your workshop in Corpus Christi on June 15: The Company Officer: The Perfect Training Officer. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a look at www.honortheirsacrifices.com and then getting back with me.
Welcome to the world's greatest training site. This is where the serious trainers come to train & learn from each other. Please allow me to invite you to the group called "HAZMAT PLACARDS TO SUCCESS". This group is for the firefighter, the EMA officer, and the HazMat Technician. I would love to hear what you have to say. This is a great time to join the group as our main focus is currently the first stages of the HazMat Incident.
Hi Chief, I spoke to you via the computer about 3 weeks ago when you were about to present your podcast at FireEngineering. You said you would send me some information on apparatus riding/tool assignments. Hope all is well with you and my email address is email@example.com. Thanks again!
Hey Brother it was great to see you in Texas. Thanks for the feedback on the class. Hope all is going well and good luck with the book. I look forward to hearing from you when you get back to Texas this summer. Let me know a little in advance and maybe we can catch a game at the Ball Park.
I would like to send you some information about Incident Command Training which is critical to success when bad things happen. Would you please send your email address so I can send this information to you.
We are excited to have you participate in our discussions and interactive forums. Before you begin posting, please take a moment to read our policy page HERE. -- Bobby Halton
