Being part of the ITRA has been exciting for us. The organization is relatively new. Kevin is a founding member and as a company we are a founding sponsor. It feels like ground level right now. That comes with challenges, growing pains one could say, but it also come with a lot of excitement.
We recently had the opportunity to spend some time in Albuquerque following the International Technical Rescue Symposium for ITRA’s Inaugural Assessor’s Course. This class was small, 15 of us. The exciting thing is these 15 people really wanted to be there. There were big name manufacturers as well as small time companies and teams represented, the common thread being dedication; people dedicated to their craft.
With dedicated people who believe in a mission, ‘shooting for the moon’ really is a plausible reality. The networking and professional relationships this opportunity has afforded really has opened doors for us and we’re excited to see where this goes.
