"For the Love of the Firefighter Jake and their Spouse"

We have focused our attention on preparing the firefighter for battle, but this week's post will provide some insight and support for the firefighter and his/her family. You see most fire administrations are buried, buried in the politics, the management of budgetary concerns and operational responses. Leadership is about leading…See More

Succession Planning - Are You Ready?

During our travels there seems to be a common complaint heard by many brothers and sisters around the country, that being their department offers little or no leadership training or development. Hopefully you weren't pinned and sent off to figure this all out on your own. Preparing the next generation of leaders is everyone's responsibility. You see it is not just the fire chief's responsibility but the entire membership regardless of rank or title. It takes many hands to build a village. That…See More

Building the Battle Ready Firefighter

Battle Ready?Fire Departments can have the best apparatus, tools / equipment and still struggle to provide professional services to their community.  Why?  Behavioral modification or “learning” is a major component in preparing brothers for battle.  While we travel across the country providing some of the best training available to firefighters, we have noted that many fire departments have lots of technology these days.  This technology, especially in the thermal imaging arena  has provided…See More

Fireground Command Winter Ops - Operating at (or) Underneath Excessively Snow Loaded Roof Systems

With the recent snowstorms that have blanketed the country, the fire service needs to take a look up before we commit to an interior or exterior fire operation. The type of structural materials, design and condition all play a big part on whether that snow loaded roof is going to be a problem.  I recently took a few minutes to…See More

Becoming an "Educated Aggressive" Firefighter

We all know that in competitive sports, second place is the first loser.  Athletes (amateur or professional) all seek to win the big game. They put in the time, effort and training. The greater the commitment before the game, the better chance you have to be on top of your game!  So why should the fire service be any different?  Our playing field is competitive and on game day it takes proficient and effective teamwork to mitigate the emergency. Which leads to the point of this article.  With…See More

Most of the instructors are local, but they do bring in outside guys too.  They typically pay a set fee and reimburse or pay for travel and lodging.  The winter school is all lecture and it is usually a pretty goo crowd. There is an expo on Friday  and class sessions all day Saturday and the morning of Sunday.  It's a good time. Some outside guys they have had include Dave Dodson, John Mittendorf, Forrest Reeder, Bobby Halton, and many more.  I think it be worth a submission.  

 

Thanks for the add and let me know if you have more questions. I can also give you the email of the coordinator if your interested.

 

Take care,

Jason

Bill,

  You should consider submitting one of your classes for the Missouri Fire School. They are always looking for new content. Here is the link to submit:  http://www.mufrti.org/conf/fireschool.asp

 

Take care,

Jason

Bill,

Sorry I missed your show last Friday I was traveling to Boston and got jammed up by American Airlines. I never did make it to Boston after 12 hours of nonsense and had to return home. I sure would like to visit with you on the radio as I find your opinions and thoughts to be extremely provocative and insightful. I apologize again for missing your show and look forward to joining you on your next show.
Your friend Bobby

Bill:

Welcome to the best of the best.

We have a meeting on Wednesday to discuss schedules and such.

I will let you know more after that, but it looks like I will be moving over here for blog talk as well.

That will give me the total FE package.

Then, I got to break the news to the FirefighterNetcast boys.
