Men Forging Ahead – Fire Service Programs

September 25, 2021, 3:00pm – 4:30pm



Men Forging Ahead – A Conversation with Chief John Tippett

Did you know that men who have experienced a similar loss can be some of your strongest sources of support?

The Men Forging Ahead group is forever linked to the fire service through our own fire heroes, and sometimes, as firefighters ourselves.

Join Eric Nagle from the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and the fathers, sons, and brothers in the Fire Hero Family community on Saturday, September 25th, at 3:00 pm (ET) for our monthly Men Forging Ahead program. We will continue our interesting and engaging look inside the current NFFF Fire Service Programs support efforts as we are joined by guest speaker, Chief John Tippett, Director of Fire Service Programs. Chief Tippett will give us an overview of the NFFF’s outreach efforts for preventing line-of-duty deaths and injuries in the fire service community.

Chief Tippett, who served for many years in Montgomery County, MD and Charleston, SC, will also share news about the new Legacies in Leadership initiative. If you have not yet met John, this will be a great chance to get to know this outstanding leader in the fire service.
