About

The American Fire Culture
Dr. Clark’s “The American Fire Culture” is a manual fire protection model based on six underlying assumptions, or DNA genes: fast, close, wet, risk, injury and death. To survive in the 21st century, fire service leadership must change our cultural paradigm to automatic fire protection that does not accept fire loss. This session will help you develop strategies to address key issues in reducing the number of firefighter and civilian fire deaths.

 
Firefighter & Fire Officer Fireground Survival
Additionally, Chief Billy Goldfeder will present, through video, audio and "WAKE UP" lecture, an in-depth program featuring specific and very recent fireground events. The presentation will have a strong focus on DWELLING & SMALL COMMERCIAL STRUCTURE FIRES that ended with tragic results. This very personal, high-energy direct and frank command, operations and tactics program (updated regularly to assure timeliness), will provide the Firefighters and Fire Officers an excellent opportunity to apply the LESSONS LEARNED to their own departments…and themselves.
