We are recored live from the floor of FRI in Kansas City, Missouri!

We tackle the importance of Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs) aimed at refining fire service operations. By tailoring these SOGs to fit your organization's needs, you can streamline your workflow and boost effectiveness. To help us navigate this topic, we have Shane Ray from the National Fire Sprinkler Association, who shares keen insights on managing fires in large buildings and the role of SOGs.

We then pivot to a discussion on the significance of grants for Blue Card certifications, Fire Command Training, and equipment procurement for command vehicles. We provide you with practical advice on how to secure these grants and offer our assistance for your grant applications. Also, we'll fill you in on the upcoming Hazard Zone Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rich Merritt of Digital Combustion also joins us to unveil the latest advancements in fire simulation software. So, buckle up and join us on this enlightening journey through the world of fire service operations and training.

This episode features Josh Blum and John Vance.
