The Becoming of an Officer

Becoming an officer and an effective leader is not accomplished from passing tests or being the best interviewer or having the highest level degree or the most years on the department.It is achieved by being a servant of the fire service. It is achieved through performing the most subtle acts on a daily basis that makes the fire service and others better.It is achieved by making sure others come first and that the successes of those around us are as important as our own.It is achieved by doing…See More

The Stone and the Blade

As many are preparing to make their way to FDIC or are already there, it is important to understand what our roles are as fire service instructors and leaders. Yes, you are both, whether you are an officer or not if you are helping to make the fire service better, you are a leader and instructor at some level.I was using my knife the other day and it needed to be sharpened. I have an old stone that has sharpened knives for many years.  When you learn how to use that stone and are patient and…See More

Control What You Can, and Do It Well!

You can't worry yourself with what the other crews or shifts do or don't do.

Don't bother yourself with what the other officers are or are not doing.

When you come on shift, all you need to worry about and focus on is taking care of business.

Your members will do the same. Control what you can, when you can and control it well!

Be that crew, company and officer. Be the best!

No Excuses!

We all advance at a different pace. Sometimes due to us not being prepared, sometimes just being beat out and other times factors we can't control come into play.



No matter what the reason, use a promotion lost as a learning experience. Not only about the process itself, but where to improve.



Use the time to gain more experience, master the craft and to prove you're the best candidate.



No sulking, no complaining and no…

Are You an Unconditional Firefighter?

I am one who has had my share of frustrations with the fire service at times.  There were times that it would have been really easy to sit back and just glide into a recliner and drift away into the land of complacency and doing as little as possible.  

It would have been real easy to become one of those guys that learned all I needed to know at the academy and on the job.  I could have been the one who wears the t-shirts and puts the stickers in the back window of my truck to…

Jason,
We still use the written log book system know as the Journal or "The Book". The house watchman is responsible for keepng the book updated at all times throughout the day and night. Typical entries include responses out of and returning to quaters, daily drill activities, incoming personell, visitors entering quaters, cheifs entering quaters, and unusual occurences to name a few. Our responses are also entered into the NYFIRS computer system upon returning to quaters by the officer on duty. Our hosewatch is manned 24 hours a day at 3 hour intervals.
