This webinar will feature Battalion Chief Charles Ridgely (retired), Howard County Fire and Rescue, the incident commander of a seven-alarm mansion fire that killed a firefighter in Clarksville, Maryland on July 23, 2018. Chief Ridgely will discuss the incident and share his experiences in dealing with the aftermath.
