JCESD #3 Keynote Address

Jason T. Waterfield,

Fire Chief (ret.)

Josh Fowler is a great up and coming professional instructor for the Fire Service. I had the opportunity to sit through a couple of his sessions. I was impressed with josh's articulated ability to present. It is very worthwhile , if you get the opportunity to attend a class or two. Again, I was very impressed to see him in action!


Lonnie Loosemore, Captain/Paramedic

It was a honor to finally shake your hand and introduce myself. Your courses and articles are amazing and motivate me to become the best version of a Hazmat/Fire Captain I can be while at the same time improving my guys around me.


Rick Edinger,

Chairman, NFPA Hazardous Materials Response Technical Committee

Josh is creating some new boundaries in leadership training for public safety professionals. His articles and teachings are a welcome addition for an emerging generation of emergency response leaders. A great read and inspiring instructor.
