Keynote Speaker

Randolph MantoothOur Keynote Speaker and special guest this year is Randolph Mantooth, well known for his portrayal of LA County Firefighter/Paramedic Johnny Gage on NBC's 1970s series "Emergency!" In the years since, Mantooth has remained close to the fire service and has been a speaker at conferences since 1986. For the past five years, he has been a vocal advocate on behalf of firefighter health and safety.

 In addition to the Sunday evening keynote, "Remembering Why," he will also be part of the NFPA1584 Rehab Monitoring class on Sunday morning. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet Randy in person in the vendor hall on Friday and Saturday when he hosts a fundraising autograph session, where Emergency! photographs and other show memorabilia will be available for purchase and personalization. Proceeds go to the LA County Fire Museum, home to the original Squad 51 and both Engines used in the show. For more information, visit his web site at www.RandolphMantooth.com
