Type of Service: Career Survival Training
Rank of Commenter: Captain

What an exceptional class! Career Survival Training goes above and beyond what is delivered in a typical fire service class. This class fixes many of the things wrong with the usual – and often just plain awful – “scared straight” approach to reducing risks related to behavior in the firehouse. With a mix of humor and heart, Eric ultimately crafts a story of why kindness, fairness, grace, and compassion serves all of us. I’m not leaving his class motivated by fear of consequences, but by an honest and earnest desire to protect and care for the people I work with. One of the top three fire service classes I have taken in my 15+ years.
