Well-known fire instructor and writer Dennis Rubin will share insight about things to come as he leads Washington, D.C. Fire and EMS. His leadership style is expected to take the department in a new direction.

As the Nation's Capital chief, he is now responsible for the supervision of more than 2,000 employees, and an annual operating budget of more than $170 million. The resident population of Washington D.C is approximately 600,000, but on an average day the influx of workers and tourists can send that figure to a staggering 1.5 million.

Prior to landing back to his beloved Washington, he headed the Atlanta Fire Department.

Join us this week on Through the Smoke as Rubin discusses the latest hot topics from Washington. They include the EMS controversy, emergency communications and special operations. He also shares thoughts on the recent line-of-duty death of Firefighter James McCrae III, and the politics behind the PSOB issue.
