We would like to welcome the three firefighters behind Make the Move Training, LLC, a Minnesota-based training group, as they reignite the popular Training & Tactics Talk podcast on Firehouse.com. The new hosts are Andrew Bieze, Joe Blank and Jonathan Hall, who are career firefighters and fire service instructors in St. Paul, Minn.  

Blank opens this podcast with a discussion on the loss of federal training grants and the impact it has had on department-wide and company training. The three discuss topics from company-level training during district inspections to getting all crew members on the same page. They discuss what training truly means.

Listen as they share lessons from their experiences with fire departments on the East Coast and in the Midwest. Whether you are from a career or volunteer department, this podcast will help you assess your training and create a better program.

Check out their Make the Move Training Facebook page for more about their group.
