This very passionate and in-your-face presentation is about recapturing the primary mission of the fire service based on the very foundation of what has defined the fire service for decades, building an undeniable trust from the public. It’s Worth the Risk is not just about aggressive interior firefighting, it is also about standing strong against all odds to create better and more effective firefighters by putting yourself out there. Aggressive does not mean unsafe and with solid training the risk is truly reduced to a manageable level. Bringing back realistic and practical live fire training is needed because experience matters, and sometimes no matter how right we do this job, things can still go wrong. It’s always been said that you can never train too much for a job that can kill you.
