The Courageous Fire Officer: It’s Not Just When Crossing the Threshold
As fire officers we are charged with the responsibility of those members we are privileged to work for. With that responsibility comes the requirement that we be courageous in those difficult and challenging moments that can have enormous implications for us as officers and for our members. The leadership and courage that fire officers routinely display on the fireground by crossing the threshold must be matched in the firehouse with the same degree of enthusiasm and skill. This class will discuss how to meet these challenges head-on and with confidence, even though it’s some of the most difficult issues we deal with as officers—but it is also one of the most important things we must do to maintain respect, trust and accountability within our crews and companies.
