Comments from Attendees...
I'm excited to start looking for funding for my fire department. It's hard to find good professional training related to the fire service, and your presentation is excellent!
Each year, we're faced with the challenge of providing more and varied services to our communities. Finding new funding sources is critical, and this exciting workshop shows us how.
