Captain Smith thank you for your words of wisdom and inspiration in this show. As a young firefighter and upcoming leader with current and future difficulties on my mind, you’ve really helped reinforce my passion and commitment to being better than great at what we do. I look forward to hearing more interviews with you in the future and if you have any wisdom to bestow on how to tactfully and effectively change the “Salty Dog” culture of training (or lack thereof) and safety in the fire service I would love to listen. Thanks again Captain.
