Kitchen Table Chat with Dr. Burton Clark and Carolyn Smith-Clark
Firefighter Netcast welcomes our newest family members, a husband-wife team you may have heard of, especially for those of you who have had the opportunity to attend classes at the National Fire Academy.
Some of the most important discussions take place at firehouse kitchen tables around the world. Whenever firefighters get together for a meal, watch a ball game, have a meeting, drill on something, remember a lost friend, relive the fire, tell stories, say hello or good by, or just have cup of coffee the kitchen table is where the best discussions take place.
Our program is intended to be a virtual firehouse kitchen table. We will be sitting at the table just talking. We do not know what we will be talking about, we do not know who will stop by to talk. There is a open invitation to 1.2 million firefighters and we are interested in what you have to say.
“Kitchen Table Chat” will have no scheduled guests. Rather, it will be an informal chat around the kitchen table, in true form to the foundation of the Firefighter Netcast.
So stop by, the coffee is on the soda is cold; you never know who or what will be talked about at the Kitchen Table Chat.
