Pick Up Your Brick

What will you do with the brick you have in your hand? In this keynote, Paul Combs will encourage the audience to embrace the past traditions and culture of the Michigan Fire Service while focusing on the future leaders who will be tasked with building upon what has been given to them with sweat, tears, and sacrifice. Putting aside petty differences and social media squabbles so the better good may be achieved. It is our sacred duty to leave the fire service in good hands and better than we found it and to build upon the wall of success, tradition, training, and leadership.
