February 21, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Quinn, first vice chair and RI director of the NVFC; Dan Kerrigan, director-at-large of the International Association of Fire Chiefs Safety, Health, and Survival Section and author of the bestselling book Firefighter Functional Fitness; Brittany Hollerbach, Ph.D., associate scientist & deputy director of the Center for Fire, Rescue & EMS Health Research; and Richard Kline, retired fire chief and national speaker on firefighter health & safety.
