During the 2023 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Conference and EXPO held in Las Vegas, International Fire and Safety (IFSJ) Managing Editor Duncan White and Telgian Holdings, Inc. CEO James Tomes managed to grab a few minutes to catch up. The pair discussed recent developments at Telgian, the latest industry trends, and the ongoing progress of the restoration of America’s fireboat, “Fire Fighter.”

As a Board Member of the fireboat, Tomes is passionate about the restoration of this historic treasure. “It is an honor and a privilege to serve on the Fire Fighter Board of Directors,” says Tomes. “The Fire Fighter is the most award-decorated fireboat in the world and a true embodiment of the commitment and sacrifice of firefighters and fire protection professionals across the nation.” (Click to learn more about Fire Fighter and its preservation efforts.)
