Join John K. Murphy, retired deputy fire chief and licensed attorney, for this free webinar to help your department explore the relationship of the law and the fire service, and what you can do to reduce your risks of litigation when it comes to areas of personnel management, emergency response, customer service, interpersonal relationships, and potential COVID-19 related concerns. Register here.
