It was a great honor to present in San Diego at Firehouse World 2015. Those that attended my course were engaged and passionate about protecting the integrity of the fire service. I was lucky enough to have Firehouse writer Ed Ballam taking notes during my course. Check out his article Firehouse World: Managing Social Media to Protect Fire Service Image outlining his takeaways from the class.
My favorite part of attending conferences is the opportunity to be introduced to new things. This conference did not disappointment me! In addition to the full schedule of amazing speakers, Firehouse World introduced me to the Help the Good Guys organization. This group is dedicated to providing support to injured first responders. They have teamed up with a number of celebrity supporters to make this happen! Attendees at Firehouse World had the privilege of being entertained by Aaron Tippin and hearing his new song, One of the Good Guys. If you are a first responder and enjoy country music, you won’t want to stop hitting the replay button on this tune! I encourage you to download it from iTunes and support this cause!
