Where firefighters come to talk training

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 the right things at every moment, even when nobody is looking or will notice.

Becoming an officer is, as in the words of our new fire chief, "not a finish line." It is just a begninning.

It is work and it takes passion and requires persistance. Don't expect good things to come your way, work to make them obtainable.

Be passionate and engaged, show others your passion and love for the job.
