For years now, I’ve listened and learned from a friend of mine — Richard Keyworth. A retired Elk Grove Village, IL Fire Department Lieutenant, he taught me about fires. And, it goes without saying that this opportunity has deepened my understanding and ability to mentor organization’s seeking to be better prepared for fires and the potential disruptive effect(s) fires can present to those organizations.
While I hope anyone reading this blog entry never has to experience a fire in the office or their home, I do hope that if you do — then, you will also have someone as dedicated as Richard investigating that fire.
After listening to him tell me stories about the fires he investigated, I always thought he should write a book utilizing that great resource of knowledge about fires. Well other people must have thought that too, because Richard has just written and published a book: ‘FIRES…Accidental or Arson’.
The book is available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon and there is even a Kindle version available.
