Succession Training at Every Level

Lets talk succession training. It always seems to be a hot topic when a bunch of firefighters get together. There is either a lack thereof or something that they always want to see happen within their departments.I see as there's two types of succession training. There's formal and informal. Formal is going to be at department programs, maybe some larger agencies might be common. Even smaller ones are starting to get it.  You got to go through this program. It's 40 hours, one day, two days.…See More

Good Vs Great....Where do you fall in?

The Good vs Great Mindset frustrates many.What it is, most of you guys can relate to this, we have something called minimum standards in the fire service and most people meet minimum standards. They're a one-year firefighter their whole career, that's their choice. There's others that want to master the craft and keep going on and challenging themselves and learning more.

Positive VS Negative

I want to talk about positive versus negative, and the first part is going to be the feedback.  Positive feedback goes a lot further than your negative feedback a lot of the time. I've gotten some really nice private messages from people, comments, posts, etc. It feels really good and I appreciate that because what you don't see are some of the negative feedback that I get for some of the stuff I do.
