   We all get asked to join various organizations, sections, etc. and many of us ask why?  What value do we get from our participation?  Well, I will be like everyone else asking you to join the Fire Service Section of NFPA.            Like any organization, you get out of it what you put into it.  Need information?  You will have access to… (Show more)

Our company wants to get training to become certified to clean/decontaminate fire fighter soft goods (we have a large commercial Esporta machine).
