Congratulations to Philadelphia Fire Departme...

Congratulations to Philadelphia Fire Department Commissioner Adam Thiel on being named one of 11 American recipients of the 2018 Eisenhower Fellowships. The Eisenhower Fellowship Program is designed to enhance international understanding and promote peaceful dialogue. Thiel's fellowship will entail studying fire safety in Germany – which has a significantly lower fire-death rate than the U.S. – and in South Africa, where the fire-death rate is significantly higher than here. Using the data gained from his studies, Thiel plans to develop cross-cultural training programs designed to reduce fire deaths in urban areas.
