Inspiring collaboration is one of FireWare’s core values. And what better way to achieve this than to have a lively discussion about various different training materials with a large number of distributors? The Ruth Lee / FireWare distributor days took place in Wales from 5th to 8th September. Experiences and ideas of no less than 17 people from 9 different countries were exchanged in an informal atmosphere.
The central questions for FireWare were: “How can we help emergency response teams from all over the world to become and remain competent?”, “Do people all over the world think alike about training and staging materials?” and: “How can we make sure optimal service is provided all over the world?”
It was certainly a challenge to find a clear answer to these questions. There were many similarities but also just as many differences, which all ask for their own, unique approach. An inspiring and open dialogue is very useful in this respect. The first person's challenge often was quickly solved by the other!
In short: An inspiring week with plenty of dialogue, delicious food (as this naturally forms part of the process too), sportsmanship and quite a few great ideas for new products, which we will soon be telling you more about!
