What a great experience! Fire Ops Training 101.

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

What’s it like to enter a burning building with flames shooting overhead? How do you extricate a trauma patient with twisted metal surrounding them after a car crash? How do you ventilate a roof when the structure is on fire? City Council members and other leaders in the Fort Wayne community found out.


Thank you to our first responders for putting their lives on the line every day.
And a thank you to FWFD and IAFF 124. You may browse through some additional photos of the Fire Opts 101 event at their website.

Independence Day Address at Freedom Fest

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Abundant Life Church, located on the corner of Hobson and Coliseum, has a great location for viewing the City’s annual Fourth of July Fireworks. They host a Freedom Fest with live music, food and speakers to celebrate the independence of our country. This year they asked me to be a part of the Freedom Fest, and I have to confess that it brought out the nostalgic in me. Here’s part of the speech that I delivered. Enjoy!
