The Fire Ops Committee met on November 7th, members of that committee are Meredith, Shelly, Chalk, Tony Morgan (OKC), Wiley Gabehart (OKC), Vice President Les Leach, Blake Weldon (Muskogee). We came up with a tentative agenda for the program and are working on what specific date the event will take place, should be next April. The Edmond Fire Department has agreed to host the event and Vice President Leach is taking the lead on the event coordination. The first round of invitations will be sent to our Locals in the next few months with specific targeting of Local elected officials. We have limited the number of participants to 15 and it so the first 15 responses we get will have a spot. If all 15 are not filled then we will open it up to State wide elected officials.
