From David Matthew – Educator/Consultant, Fire Service Professional, South San Francisco Fire Department (past)

The CHDS program compels transformation of the Homeland Security leadership that invests in this 18 month journey. For me, the transformation was from a response perspective to the significance of prevention and intervention. The synergistic effect on the long term future of Homeland Security makes this program essential. It is inspiring to work with such a great group of professionals providing a considerable incentive to continue the relationship with CHDS long after graduation.
