This weekend, the Institute members are hearing various presentations over a three-day period. I have listed the topics below so our readers will have an idea of what this group is discussing. Insurance Services Office (ISO) presentation “Tell the Truth” by Chief Carter Jones National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) by Chief Tony Dicks Abbeville County Overview by Fire Marshal Dan Evatt McCormick County Overview by the McCormick County Panel “Each One, Reach One” by Chief Trey Cooper Recruitment and Retention Discussion Fire Service Legals and Liability Bush River VFD Presentation by Chief Blair Long So far, Institute members have shared positive comments about the presentations and speakers. We trust the entire program will benefit all parties involved, and it will prove to be a valuable resource to current and future leaders of our state’s fire service.
