Chief, I had an awesome time in class.. IT was a very motivating, energetic and Intense learning experience.. The call we went out on was a mutual aid and we had to really be in the game for assignments, and listening to IC. The class could not have come at a better time. The knowledge that was given was a blessing that I will take with me wherever I may go.. Thanks again Scott..

Chief Thompson, I really enjoyed your Podcast about making training personal. I had a question about getting rookie fire fighters to do LODD Reports. I wanted to know if you just have them study the report and lead a disscussion, or if you have them use a standard approach to analyzing a NIOSH report. I have several fire fighters that I would like to get doing this, but they have limited instuctional experience and I want to give them some tools to succeed with the assignment. Thanks.

Chief Thompson,

Congratulations on the new job. The Colony is a very lucky FD to have you. I look forward to seeing you at FDIC. Thanks for all you do for the fire service.

Hey Chief,
Thanks for the note. I finished up yesterday. I'll be in touch after the holidays. I've got a few other things shaking and would like to run some things by you.
Have a Merry Christmas!

If you wouldn't mind, take a few minutes to check out then contact me. I work on the "other side of the lake" from you and would love to see if you have any suggestions on how we might be able to work together.

Just happened to come across your "Big 5", great idea we have to keep doing the basics. I am trying to revamp our training program, needs a bit of a shake-up. Anything you can send me or post on here would be great. Always looking for new drills and input on training program development.

What an awesome event you just had in Lewisville! I was thrilled to be a part of it. All of the firefighters were so nice & helpful, and the bagpipers & drummers were incredible!
