Old -- oh okay we'll move to the next are you. The police chief and my assistant chief I don't always says -- where did you get that -- it. Sort of made it up. Firefighter. I could never get excited about a one story building fully involved -- schools cannot get excited about them. The -- the lighting situation. I got promoted on the rise times and they're gonna give me the best -- -- -- This is normally -- full candidate did. -- these are not really stupid people and we learned a long time ago. If we didn't stand in a circle and talk we show that we -- -- took a bullet -- -- It's -- you press the deal with nine line of any language that comes out of the other side. Of the firehouse mean city ball you have to do it. And yet should be good enough about it. That you could say anything you want to say in any language that they think they understand reinforce it and get the money and wondered what in your book. We wish you well know why don't think there's a lot of -- left in America and advisers. And would -- I had a very simple leadership. The -- One on my locker was was Vince Lombardi speech about.

Good good go. -- Yeah. Ladies and gentlemen please welcome Diane Feldman and Glenn Corbett. Good morning everybody.

You might call them the fab floor. The attendant seemed very note go. Captain Mike -- on now. Captain -- does and capping Casey Billups who we like the called the Seattle guys. Our -- fire officers from the Seattle Washington fire department. Who have dedicated themselves to preaching the gospel of air management. The idea of the role of -- management. -- Rome as everyone calls -- now. Got started -- two of their fellow Seattle firefighters got lies that fires and ran out of there. One in a large hotel fire and -- on a large finished processing boat fire and both of the firefighters almost lost their lives. The force the out of guys got together after that. And we're trying to figure out how to solve the problem of firefighters running out of there and structure fires. They looked at the scuba diving industry and figured out the solution. That firefighters have to leave the hazard area -- floor at their low fire alarm active. Many fire departments around the nation have adopted the Rome program as becoming air management standard of the fire service. The new NFPA 1404 standard mandates that firefighters follow the roam wherever they use here and whenever they use here -- CBS. According to Mike Galliano air mansion is just now starting to be. -- a critical component. Of -- and strategic and tactical considerations. But is still slowing coming. Every firefighter now knows that smoke. That they breathe is toxic incapacitating. And carcinogenic. And it's a real mess yet somehow chief and company officers are still content. And letting the firefighters say that they love to breathe the smoke is part of a standard operating procedure. My partners and I are committed to proclaiming from the rooftops. Across America the true leaders in the fire service will -- several management. And managed -- air just like they do every other resource in the fire programs. This'll take guts as it may means you'll be unpopular in some fire -- also mean your firefighters will be safer more effective. And have a better understanding. And a better -- ability of not ending their careers because of that sixty -- or dying. Of cancer. -- smoke inhalation. The Seattle guys have been teaching for almost ten years. They began in their -- department teaching basic fire ground skills. To their members and now they teach nationwide on firefighter safety and survival. They are members of their departments fire department operational skills enhancement training development team. And they are committed to teaching basic structural firefighting to their department and the department across the country. They -- their -- training company called effective fire service training. And they just put out a higher engineering book called air management for the fire service available in the bookstore downstairs. I'm sure they're gonna sign copies to for anyone wants them.
