There are two individuals who serve as a literary barometer for me and fire service writing. Not a month goes by that I don’t look at what they have each produced and weigh the option of continuing writing. One is managing fire department communications in the Washington, D.C. area. The other was taken from us nearly nine years ago. His work still speaks loudly.
The 2010 Andy Fredericks Training Days information is out. No doubt it is probably the best money you will spend, especially if you are a local, and may well be one of the strongest upcoming regional training events that a group of fire service ‘inklings‘ could endorse. As the economy continues to fluctuate departments and personnel may have to trim the budget more than before. That might mean going to Baltimore, San Diego or Indianapolis on your own. Of course, that’s fine, if wish to spend your time listening to lectures about the latest philosophy on analyzing for decisive tactical engagements during minimum, mild-risk, initial interior operations.
This year’s speakers and subjects preview another great weekend. Your registration may not get you a snazzy mouse pad or calendar of bikini-clad firefighters, but it will support the Fredericks Family Fund, who host the event.
