Chief Bobby Halton is nothing if not authentic and genuine. I speak with the Education Director of FDIC, one of the biggest Fire and First Responder events in the world, about how he prepares for a week-long odyssey, from a city-wide takeover with real hands on training, to a monster-large exhibition, to preparing for and rehearsing for his part in Opening Ceremonies, Bobby provides a lot of punch in this hour.
