Lessons Learned

This conference will have some of the most sought after speakers in the national fire service to place a laser focus on confronting the challenges in the fire service with LODDs. Various case studies of LODD incidents will be highlighted that continue to show that firefighters are dying for the same reasons time and time again.

The “elephant in the room” is that our profession has to confront these issues more directly if there is any chance to reduce many LODDs that were caused by preventable errors. Attendees will be challenged to become change agents in their respective fire departments to provide the leadership that is desperately needed. This conference is a must for firefighters at all levels to gain valuable insights that will have a positive effect on the profession we all love. We owe it to those who made the ultimate sacrifice!
