I recently made District Chief. I'm loving it and I'm having a blast training with the gals and guys in my district. I know some of you have been chiefs longer then I've been on the job (18) years and you have had to deal with some pretty horrific ordeals.
I'm not even sure if it is appropriate to bring up but I've never heard anyone speak to it and I'm wondering how a Chief is supposed to handle a situation when the worst happens.
If this thread offends too many of you, I'll remove it. I know it isn't easy to talk about and I don't imagine that there will be hoards of responses but if possible, can any of you share how you have dealt with the death of one of the people in your Battalion/District due to scene activities.
If possible, can you share what happened at the incident, how did you handle the remainder of the incident? How did you deal with the rest of the shift? Telling the Family?
