A Standing Ovation

The event center

When Dr. Rich Gasaway finished his Fireground Safety Workshop in Grand Rapids last Thursday night, the room of firefighters stood up and gave him a standing ovation. It was a remarkable evening.

Below is a random selection of comments from some of the signed evaluation forms the firefighters completed after the class: 

-As a firefighter, fire officer, and fire instructor—this class is a must.
-I recommend this program to every fire department!
-It should be mandatory for all fire officers.
-Inspirational speaker.
-This presentation was eye opening!
-I strongly encourage anyone on a fire department to attend this class.
-Thank you, thank you, thank you!
-Many principles apply to all disciplines of life.          
-Dr. Gasaway is articulate, experienced, sincere, and passionate.

The presentation
We thank Brooklyn Park and Grand Rapids for hosting the first two workshops. The remaining classes are in: Rochester on Oct. 1, Mankato on Oct. 2, Brainerd on Oct. 15, and Perham on Oct. 16. To register, go to

The Police Leadership Workshops with Randy Means are also filling fast! The Bloomington workshop has already filled up, but there is still room for a few more at White Bear Lake on Oct. 3.

Responder Safety = Public Safety

Up next time: “Lakeville PD and LMCIT Loss Control reduce accidents”

In the meantime, stay safe and be careful.
