Following the 117th Annual Convention in Fairplay MD, members of the CVVFA fanned out across the country delivering our life safety message on Highway Incident Scene Safety in 5 states, 4 in the same week.
Out in Cleveland Bob Cumberland and Steve Barry participated at the invite of Candice McDonald in the NASA Safety Day. Steve Austin and Jerry Daniels headed to Fire Rescue International in Dallas where Bob Timko snapped a photo of Iriving Texas FD’s new blocking engines. Stay tuned for more about that later this year as the CVVFA reports on this emerging best practice.
Steve Heefner, Hoby Howell and Dave Lewis were up at the FASNY Convention outside of Syracuse NY with the ResponderSafety display booth. If that wasn’t enough Donna Welsh and Bob Cumberland worked 2 PA rest stops and delivered our distracted driving message.
Then VP Allen Baldwin, President Greg Yost, Steve Austin, Bob Cumberland and Jim Kimble traveled to the WV State Firemen’s Convention where Chief Baldwin was the speaker at the Annual Banquet. At each event our folks encouraged firefighters and others to join the Association and enroll in the ResponderSafety Learning Network.
