Join host Al Schlick as he welcomes Assistant Chief Brian Carlson from the Burnsville (MN) Fire Department and they discuss revamping a fire department training program.  Brian currently serves as the assistant chief of EMS and training for the Burnsville FD, a 40-member, all-career department about 20 miles south of Minneapolis/Saint Paul.  In that role for the past two years, Brian oversees all firefighter and paramedic training and manages the department’s ALS transport service. 

A paramedic and firefighter for the past 10 years, Brian has a bachelor’s degree in public administration, and previously worked as a paramedic and firefighter/paramedic in the Las Vegas area.  Listen in and join in on the conversation at The Training Office, the official show of the International Society of Fire Service Instructors.
