“Through the Smoke” Podcast

 AA040822 20s

At the IAFC Fire-Rescue International, held in August 2009 in Dallas, Chief Billy Goldfeder conducted a “Through the Smoke” podcast titled “What Do You Know About ISO?” for Firehouse.com. Chief Goldfeder’s guests were Mike Waters, ISO’s vice president of Risk Decision Services, and Robert “Butch” Cobb, ISO’s director of Community Hazard Mitigation. The purpose of the podcast was to discuss the positive results of improved fire-protection efforts and ISO’s commitment to assisting communities with fire-protection challenges. We’d like to encourage you to listen to Chief Goldfeder’s podcast.
