Dave Dodson is a 34-year fire service veteran―25 years on the street―starting his fire service career with the US Air Force. After the USAF, Dave spent almost seven years as a fire officer and training/safety officer for the Parker Fire District in Parker, Colorado. He became the first career training officer for Loveland Fire & Rescue (CO) and spent time as an engine officer, hazmat technician, duty safety officer, and emergency manager for the city. He accepted a shift battalion chief position for the Eagle River Fire District in Colorado before starting his current company, Response Solutions, which is dedicated to teaching safe and practical incident handling. Dave is the author of Delmar’s Fire Department Incident Safety Officer and Fire Engineering’s Training DVD series The Art of Reading Smoke. He continues to develop and deliver classes on firefighter safety and survival issues and firstdue officer procedures. Chief Dodson has served as the chairman of the NFPA 1521 Task Group (Fire Department Safety Officer) and served on the Fire Service Occupational Safety and Health Technical Committee for NFPA. Dave is also a past president of the Fire Department Safety Officer’s Association. In 1997, Dave was chosen as the ISFSI George D. Post Fire Instructor of the Year.
