Even though our conference is the linch pin of our mission to build better firefighters, it's not the only way to get that done. We've started a collection of the recommended reading of our committee members. Now, none of us think you can read yourself into being a firefighter, but you can read yourself into being a better firefighter. Give the lists a look. You've got a couple of months before the conference. Plenty of time to knock out a book or two.
