Notes from a Recent Class

One of the things i love to do is share different ideas and thoughts that i pick up from classes and seminars. I really wish more people would post and share notes so more people can learn.

The Class i took featured John Barylick and Joe Pronesti. John Reviewed The Station Nightclub Fire that Occurred in 2003. Joe Presented his Lost in the Fog Program for Small Departments.

Both Classes were Outstanding, and well worth the time. I have included my Notes Below. I tried to make them as easy to understand as possible, so please reach out if something doesn’t make sense.

Thanks, Ethan Bansek
