NFA Training Specialist

National Fire Academy (NFA) training specialist Mike Weller will co-present with Richland (Washington) Fire Department Chief Tom Huntington on May 11 from 10:45 a.m. to Noon. Their presentation will explore the effectiveness of placing multiple students from the same fire department into CRR courses and how learning together helps department colleagues to work collaboratively to build an organizational culture that institutionalizes risk reduction as a core value.
