Our Traning Channel is back! A NEW Training Series with Chief Dennis Rubin startered last Thursday at 4:00PM PST

“Talking With The Fire - Rescue Service Legends”

Take a moment and watch the video with Fire Chief Gains that was part of his Broadcast. 

In 2008 to 2010 a series of videotape recording were prepared to obtain insight from some of our America’s fire-rescue service luminaries.  The idea of this federal government sponsored training project, was to tap into the experience of these great people.  The focus is to learn from their open, honest and frank communications as though you are sitting with each leader at a coffee table in your firehouse. 

The first presenter in this never before seen series will be the late Chief Glenn Gaines.  TheBattalion.TV is sad to report that Chief Gaines past away recently.  However, with the most respect and honor for him and his legacy, four short interviews will soon be aired on our channel.  With the help of modern technology, the current and future generations of firefighters will be fortunate enough to learn from many of our masters.  Each of the interviews were conducted by Dennis Rubin as the program host.

If you are interested in learning from some of our best, please tune-in to TheBattalion.TV and enjoy the newest series called the American Fire Service Legends.  See you on The Battalion TV!
