The Giveback Program
Hosted by the Concord Fire Department 100 Warren C Coleman Blvd. Concord NC
March 22 and 23, 2017 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Task Force 1, Inc. has been blessed with many of the nation’s best instructors. They all have a love for the job and remain highly charged despite their long careers. Some of our instructors are retired from the job while others are still working. One thing is clear; they all want to “Give-Back” so that others may benefit from what they have learned and experienced in their careers.
“Give Back” is a highly interactive and engaging program. We will bring some of the nation’s best instructors and fire service leaders to your fire station to share from their experiences as they explain the challenges they faced in this tough profession. No war stories. Instead, they will “give back” to their fire service brothers and sisters so they can succeed as company officers, chief officers or even as Fire Chief! Whether your department has a crew of “rarin’ to go” company officers or a group of salty fire officers who just need to get on track, “The Give Back Program” will jump-start your leadership team!
