July Virtual NEOSEN Meeting
1 Jul 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Speaker: Michael Sedlacek – Captain, Madison FD, Madison, AL
Topic: Level Up!
Overcoming obstacles successfully is more dependent upon our attitude than the obstacle itself. Therefore, it’s important to approach these unprecedented times with a positive attitude and determination to find solutions. Maintaining a positive “can-do” attitude enables us to find solutions and, in the process, discover opportunities to enhance our community outreach programs. This approach encourages continued progress – ensuring a temporary road block doesn’t become a permanent road closure!
