‘In Honor of the Charleston 9’ Seminar in Johnson City, TN

Dr. David Griffin, one of the first arriving members of the Charleston Fire Department on June 18th, 2007 at the Super Sofa Store Fire, will be speaking at a seminar hosted by the Johnson City Professional Firefighters Association on February 22nd and 23rd. Griffin had just been promoted to Assistant Engineer when his department responded to a highly publicized event that took the lives of 9 Charleston firefighters. After the tragedy, Griffin returned to school to better his education and now travels across the country to educate others. He has also published a book, In Honor of the Charleston 9: A Study of Change Following Tragedy. The book has been featured among Amazon’s Top Sellers and can be purchased by clicking here (link).
