“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”
“There aren’t any great men. There are just great challenges that ordinary men like you and me are forced by circumstances to meet.”

Welcome to The Briefing Room. This is one of four websites sponsored by the Fire Services Training Institute designed for the collection of articles, research documents and interviews with subject matter experts within the public safety community. You can also access Mike’s Library.
The site also contains a “body of knowledge” that supports our research that you are welcome to utilize in your own studies and research. This library is continuously growing as we continue to expand our database.
We hope that our efforts will be helpful to everyone interested in public safety. Our other sites that you may find helpful: Table Talk with Ronny J. Coleman, The Drawing Board with Dave Hubert and The Bomberos with Marco Olmos.
