Fasten Your Seatbelt and Enjoy the Ride!

Chief Rufer is one of the Hottest speakers on the conference circuit today. Training planners love Chief Rufer and bring him back year-after-year for his fast-paced, content-rich programs that keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Chief Rufer delivers training to firefighters, company officers, and chiefs, locally, regionally, and nationally. He is a thought leader on a wide range of topics — providing audiences with the tools to become more innovative in their approach to fire ground operations, the design of training programs, and recruiting volunteers.

What makes Chief Rufer unique is the “genuine” factor. Audiences always relate to his experiences, struggles and lessons. But what knocks your socks off is his impeccable delivery. Chief Rufer’s programs combine a down-to-earth attitude with a colorful artistic streak. Comments from audience members such as, “I can’t wait to take this back to my department and drill on it,” “Great class, I learned alot” and, “nice to see a volunteer that cares,” are a testament to his effectiveness and style.

He is the author of HELP Wanted: Volunteer Recruitment and Retention which has helped many departments improve their training and recruitment efforts.

Felt the Heat..

We all hear of flashovers and the dangers but because it hasn’t happened to us we just pass it off. Being in the simulator and being able to see the signs of a flashover and then watch it occur definitely opens up your eyes and gives you a reality check as to the dangers of an impending flashover. I think this training is a must for all firefighters no matter what the rank. It is invaluable and might just help save your life or another brothers life someday. Chief Rufer has a great staff and a great program going. It would be a waste not to take advantage of it.

I was blown away at the amount of information I could plug into my department immediately! Spot on tactics that can be used as soon as class was over.
