I visit a lot of fire stations and get the privilege to meet a lot of firefighters when I’m on the road presenting Firehouse Training sessions in Ohio. Earlier this month I completed my 100th Firehouse Training session. I have been so busy I had overlooked the date when it happened. But my colleagues and friends in Columbus Division of Fire and IAFF Local 67 helped me celebrate Tuesday.
