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.

A Good Evening spent

I had the privilege of attending 3 of Chief Rufer’s classes in February at the Wisconsin EMS Conference in Milwaukee and thought he would be an excellent speaker at our monthly fire chiefs association meeting/dinner. He did an excellent job of tailoring his normally longer presentation down to acceptable “after dinner” time frame. Lots of good information about recruiting and retaining volunteers.

WOW – Awesome Class – Training Officer Boot Camp

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.

Chief Rufer’s Strategies and Tactics for Residential Firefighting was a very informative and thorough training class. Learned a great deal from his very engaging presentation. I would highly recommend bringing XtremeFD in for a presentation!
