Smoke Alarms—Do They Wake Children?

 I was presented with a challenge about smoke alarms, I was asked to investigate why there are all these news stories out there about how children don’t wake up when the traditional smoke alarm goes off, but at the same time, we don’t see personalized smoke alarms being marketed widely. There was also a comprehensive study…See More

Make Time

You’ve heard the saying, “Actions speak louder than words.”  It rings true.  If you want to be the best, then you need to try your best.  You need to be all in.  There is no ‘part way.’  There’s no quick-fix, juicing diet plan that will help catapult you to that status.  It’s sweat, hours and commitment.  If…See More

Confidence

I haven’t always been the ‘out front’ type.  I used to spend my time in the back of the room, positioned perfectly to avoid being called on, or called out, able to slink away without being noticed. …See More

Out Front

I hold myself to a very high standard, I strive for perfection day in and day out.  It gets a little exhausting and can be defeating chasing an unattainable bar, but I would never consider lowering it. The problem with aiming so high is that I expect those around me to hold themselves equally accountable. Time after time I'm…See More

Fire Service Leadership

No matter what type of tactics or operations your department provides, the quality and efficiency are dramatically affected by the leadership skills of your officers. Leadership is the most important element of everything we do!

Who's Right?

As I push forward to be the best firefighter I can be, I spend a lot of time reading articles and blogs about tactics and fire science.  I watch videos and listen to podcasts.  I talk to men and women who have been in the fire service for decades, trying to tap into their knowledge.  I find myself overwhelmed by the amount of…See More
