The New England FOOLS have brought together some of the finest Fire Service instructors from around the country, both old friends and new, for an intimate one-day seminar.
Last year we set the bar high with the inaugural 2012 event in NH.
We head east in 2013 for a change of venue, and the opportunity to show the Midcoast of Maine why with the New England FOOLS, Brotherhood is more than just a word.
Brothers attending: BRING YOUR HELMETS!

As a part of our Northeastern Fire Summit, we have secured an exclusive screening of the upcoming movie “Murph the Protector”, which tells the story of Medal of Honor Recipient Michael Murphy, who’s story was first told in the book ‘Seal of Honor’. This screening will be on Sunday morning the 23rd at a time to be named later. It will be early enough (but not TOO early) to allow for travel home for all. I urge you all to try to attend. We are beginning this weekend with a guy from Long Island (Captain Dugan) speaking about Honor. We will be capping this weekend off with the screening of this movie, about a guy from Long Island that personfies Honor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ps8z2-40YM
