From “The Burn Briefing”
On May 23rd and 24th, St. Johns IAFF L1075 hosted an educational seminar focused on the Modern Fire Environment and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in first responders which was attended by approximately 75 members. These two topics are at the forefront of our profession on a day to day basis. Presenting these important topics were Sean DeCrane and Vince Savoia. Also, joining us was IAFF 15th District Vice President Dave Burry, Tom Flamm, IAFF Burn Coordinator and Bob Macleod, the 15th District Burn Coordinator, who reported on recent activity undertaken by the IAFF and the IAFF Charitable Foundation Burn Fund and the newly created Burn Assistance Grant Fund.
