Welcome What's New at PFFA
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The City of Alexandria and the Alexandria Fire Department is honored to be hosting Dr. David Griffin on August 11 -13th. Dr. Griffin is a Captain with the Charleston Fire Department in Charleston, South Carolina. Dr. Griffin’s seminar, In Honor of The Charleston 9: A Study of Change Following Tragedy, is the story of nine firefighters who perished in a warehouse fire in Charleston on June 18, 2007. This seminar will give first hand accounts of that day, never before seen video footage of the incident and the toll it took on David’s life as well as the Charleston Fire Department.
Even though this event took place within the fire department, we feel that anyone or any organization that is involved in public safety and service, including fire, police, EMS, etc., could potentially be affected by such a tragedy. Dr. Griffin will speak on the resistance to the changes following the fire and the incredible changes he and the Charleston Fire Department have since made.
The seminar will be held at the Alexandria Senior High School auditorium located at 800 Ola St. Alexandria, LA (corner of Jackson St. ext and Ola St). There will be three presentations:
Thursday, Aug. 11 1pm - 5pm
Friday, Aug. 12 830am - 1230pm
Saturday, Aug. 13 830am – 1230pm
Feel free to download the attachment to this email and share. This seminar is sponsored by the City of Alexandria and will be at no cost to you, your family or your department/organization. Please be our guest for this life-changing presentation. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org with your number of guests.
