The July 17th monthly CFFCA meeting and program served as an informative operational brief on Transitional Fire Attack based on the UL study. Deputy Fire Chief Will Watts presented the material in a PPT format with a multi-agency round-table discussion period upon conclusion. The subject matter generated a healthy discussion with a request that the CFFCA Board establish a joint working group to develop a more regional inoperatability  approach.
