Meet Your Director

Have you ever thought that when you write that $15.00 dollar check every year for your NSFA dues where does your money really go? Is it put to good use? Who decides what to do with the funding? What have we really done this past year to represent the good of the membership? If you have these questions then you have the right to know. And you know what else? We want you to know!!!!!!! Be there at the Saturday morning general session and each director will have the chance to tell you what they have done for you over the last year. Any questions feel free to contact me.

See you in Virginia City!

 

Steve McClintock, President

Stop, Drop, and Roll – Are you Ready?

In the fire service it is a given we are always preaching, performing, and practicing safety. We do a dangerous job and the more we know, the safer we are. So it makes perfect sense to have a plan like stop, drop, and roll. But… are we missing something? What about the emotional toll that firefighting takes on our relationships, health, and career? What kind of training do we do to make sure we navigate that safely? What are the strategies and tactics needed to safely manage our day-to-day lives? What if there was a simple method that would assist you in navigating any hazardous emotional environment? Would you be interested in deploying that lifeline? Join in on June 25th for an inspiring keynote on the 3 P’s, Perspective, Purpose and Passion, and how you can safely answer your own emotional 9-1-1 call! When we are healthy, everyone comes home safely!

Our keynote speaker, Gina Geldbach-Hall, is a retired battalion chief, life coach, and author. She is excited to be sharing her lessons from the fire line so you to can empower yourself and ignite your own flame! Check out her book, Firegal… Rising from the Ashes, available on Amazon.com and her website at FiregalWisdom.com.

April is designated as National Cancer Control Month, a tme when everyone should take stock of what they can do to prevent and control cancer. Since firefighters are at increased risk of several types of cancer than the general population, it is especially important that as a first responder you educate yourself on your risks and what you can do to minimize those risks.
