Meet The Owner

My name is Keith Smith. After I retired as Training Chief for Clackamas Fire, I created Brassroots Training Solutions. My company is here to help departments bridge the gap of formal training program management for new Training Officers. As it happens in most departments, the job of Training Officer is passed around and we often reinvent the wheel, so to speak. I use my 37 years of fire experience, seven years of experience assigned to an award-winning Training Division, and what I have learned from other departments in my travels to help your department develop a training program.

My mission is to create a training program system for your department that is effective, efficient, manageable, scalable, and transferable. There will always be change. This system will be the backbone from which changes are made. No more re-inventing the wheel. Together, we may replace or refurbish a wheel, however, we will not be inventing it again.
