Sharing the significance of 9/11 with new firefighters

Set aside time to watch videos and talk with new firefighters about the significance of that day on fire service history

In this episode of What's YOUR Problem, Deputy Chief Billy Goldfeder answers this viewer question:

It’s been 22 years since 9/11. Some of the newest members of my department clearly have no clue about the impact of that day on the fire service as a whole. We have some 9/11-related items posted at the station, and some of the guys will talk about what they remember from watching everything unfold on TV that day. How do we instill the history in our new members so they understand and respect what the 343 did that day?"
