We're getting ready for the 2017 Wichita HOT and looking forward to another year of exceptional training. We hope you'll join us and make sure to check back regularly and we'll have updates on our instructors and offerings.
This year we are proud to have New York Fire Lieutenant Timothy Klett as our keynote speaker and lecturer. Lieutenant Klett has been in the fire service for 34 years as both a volunteer and career firefighter. He is well known within the community for his expertise on engine company operations. He is a lead instructor for the Fire Department Training Network and author for numerous fire service publications. He has been an instructor in the past at Wichita HOT and we're happy to have him back with us. Lieutenant Klett will be providing his Engine Company Officer lecture during the breakout sessions. You can learn more about him here.
