The boys and I are heading out to watch the Rangers beat the Yankees tonight...again, and I thought about you and just wanted to take a minute to say hi. Hope all is well and we will see you in Texas soon.
Just wanted to say I read First In, Last Out a few years ago when I first made Lieutenant. I have reccomended your book to countless other officers in several fire departments. It is the best source for no-nonsene leadership. As a captain, I always refer back to it for insight. Thanks for writing something better than 90% of what is out there.
I wanted to thank you for writing your book “First In, Last Out. Outstanding book so far. I am a new officer in my Volunteer Department and have found that your book can be applied to both the fire service, as well as, my regular job.
DON’T be the next one, BE safe!
I just learned you will be speaking at the SC Firefighters' Association Conference. I am hoping to get a chance to meet you there. I am thrilled that the SCFA has finally elevated its conference to the level it is this year, I only hope it continues.
Chief, welcome. I have seen you many times and met you once in MA and RI during training seminars. I am looking forward to seeing your seminar in August in Duxbury, MA. I own your book already .. but looking forward to getting it signed.
John, missed you at FDIC I guess I was buried in the logs warehouse. I am working on a Smoke Diver document that we can release that will give you an idea of the multitude of skills and drills. Keep in touch.
Chief again I wanted to say thanks. I attended a couple of classes this year at FDIC. I told you about the email a couple of years ago. Thanks maybe some of that information will give someone enough knowledge to keep them a little safer.
I was in the Chief Officer class last week in Colonie. As usual, you hit the mark. I was very pleased to see you again(although I'm sure you don't remember me). I hope to keep in touch, and give you a shout when I am teaching near the city again. Thanks again.
Are you interested in speaking to my department one night during FDIC?I know you are busy but if there was a night that you had available we would love to have you. We are located approx. 15 minutes due south of downtown Indy. If interested, let me know what night and a cost.
