Ted Huffman

2016, Ron Hering Awards

“I create a world of unconditional love by modeling its existence.”

As Director of the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) Fire Academy, Ted Huffman has implemented a variety of diversity initiatives, which includes an inner city high school public safety program for fire and emt training. And, most recently, he has successfully established, in cooperation with KeyBank Foundation, a Grant based diversity initiative for female and minority candidates interested in a career in public safety. Ted believes “there are better ways to do things. I don’t believe in lowering the bar, I believe in raising the individual. When I think about my want to stand up against racism, I often ask myself, if not me, then who.” Ted has over 39 years experience as a Firefighter, Paramedic, and Instructor.
