PSEN in conjunction with Rick Best opened this series talking about the manner a firefighter might consider when moving from the back step to the front seat.  We talked about using the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives as a foundation to begin a steady and methodical change in culture.  We hope you enjoy this podcast.

In this episode I talked with Jay Ruoff a friend, colleague and now a retired Chief of Operation with the Littleton Colorado Fire Department.  Jay brings his thoughts, experiences, and wisdom to the episode.   Listen and enjoy.
