"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

Brother in Need of Support

Hello FE Friends. Please, SHARE this with your friends as well. This could easily be YOU or I in time of need. We pray that never happens to anyone...  If each of us gave up just one coffee or soda to PAY IT FORWARD to a fellow brother, we would be able to help a brother in need without any real inconvenience. THANKS FOR SHARING. Lieutenant Scott Schrader is a great guy, he has a wife who is a nurse and a young family... He is banged up pretty bad and has a long road ahead of him to…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

Billy, I think I've got two log ins, so hope I don't confuse myself too! Where's those "Y" kids when you need them ! ( to fix your computers, and figure out what all the buttons are on the phones!)  Rick - Assessment Centers

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,

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

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.
