Where firefighters come to talk training

My good friend Tom Jenkins of Rogers Arkansas is running for second VP of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. Tom is a really solid Fire Chief, he's devoted to good training, he's committed to ethical leadership and he's just a true gentleman in every sense of the word. I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a quick look at Tom's history visit his website and maybe send a good word to him about his candidacy. Thanks Bobby
