About this event

Tribute to Fire Fighters


From just community members banding together, to the first dedicated all volunteer fire fighting unit established 1736 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fire fighters have been an integral part of our communities from rescuing cats out trees to the most tragic disasters, natural and manmade throughout United States history.

In GORUCK fashion let’s share some of the history that these fearless men and women have endured while establishing what is the standard by what other countries compare themselves to. Let GORUCK provide you the opportunity to learn what “Semper Paratus” means!!!

You will walk, climb, crawl and move massive amounts of weight up the steepest steps your GORUCK Cadre can find. You might even find yourself repelling out of a building or two!!!

Fearing he would "miss the war," Norwich dropped out of the Nation's oldest private military college, joined the Army, and was awarded the Green Beret. Known on his teams as either Norwich or Boy Scout, the tenants of each are captured in ink on his back. Now separated from Group and uniformed service he is meshing his military and first responder experience to assist in the development and delivery of instructor-led training courses, classes, and workshops relevant to counterterrorism, resiliency, and cybersecurity to various public and private sector audiences throughout the great Garden State. Norwich is happily married to a remarkable woman and enjoys raising a daughter with a balance of glitter and grit.
