And just like that we come to the last day of the 32nd Annual ARFF Working Group International Education Symposium and it was another successful gathering of ARFF professionals.

I would like to congratulate John Trew, Vice Chairman, IAFPA Director, Falck Fire Services, UK and a past Board of Director on the ARFFWG BOD for being selected as the 2022 “Legends Award” recipient.

My thanks to the ARFF Working Group BOD, Barb Haas, Pam Johnson and everyone who made the week a great experience.

As always, it was exciting to meet my old ARFF Brothers and Sisters as well as having the opportunity to make new ones at these ARFF Working Group events. Next stop Daytona Beach, FloridaonFebruary 26 through March 1, 2023 at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront for the 2023 ARFF Leadership Symposium, hope to see you there!

Now here are the stories for today’s report…

For those heading home from the Symposium, safe travels, and for everyone else, be safe out there!
