The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Nevada Chapter would like to thank all who attended and participated in The Douglas O'Sullivan Downtown Training Symposium. It is because of your support that we are able to put on fantastic training events like this. We are also incredibly appreciative of our instructors and industry partners. We are able to offer classes of the highest caliber because of their commitment to Firefighters, our community, and the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. The West Coast Offense and East Coast Rescue Solutions are two of Tge fire services preeminent training companies, and their willingness to donate their time, effort, and talents to support the mission of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is crucial to our ability to supporting Firefighters and their families in their times of greatest need. The ability to host events like these is also hugely dependent on our community partners and we can not thank Hogs & Heifers, the Downtown Grand, and the City Of Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Department for their contributions to The Douglas O'Sullivan Downtown Training Symposium and the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. These entities donated the space and provided a tremendous amount of support for the training that took place on Downtown3rd Street and the LVF&R Training Center. Finally we would like to thank Globe Turnouts and Jim Beam for their continued support of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. Globe was kind enough to provide Turnouts for all of those who needed them throughout the weekends training, and Jim Beam coordinated with Hogs & Heifers to throw an incredible party. Most importantly we raised funds for the family of Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Firefighter Douglas O'Sullivan, who tragically passed away in accident late last year. We hope that we honored Firefighter O'Sullivan's memory and that we were able to ease the financial burden of losing a loved one in some way. We are deeply sorry for the loss of one of our communities most beloved fireman, but we are incredibly proud of the response that our local and national firefighting community provided. Please be on the lookout for future training and fundraising events that the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Nevada Chapter will be coordinating. We will once again be on Downtown3rd for the annual St Patrick's Day celebration, and we are very excited to announce that we will be putting on our very first "Tactics On Tap" this upcoming March. Our guest speaker will be Brian Brush from Edmond, Oklahoma FD and Fire By Trade. Stay tuned for more information and details, and thank you for supporting Nevada's Firefighters and their families!
