Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

What is scarier, a headless horseman terrorizing a small New York farming village, or knowing that your proud department is ran by a headless leader? In this Halloween season of ghouls, goblins, ghosts, and Lady Gagas, perhaps we should look inward to our own demons and excise those who torment and haunt our hallowed bays. Leadership should be clear, concise, and present - not over bearing - but everybody should know who the "boss" is.

That white hat doesn't make you a leader, it's just something that suppose to sit on your unsevered, well-trained, passionate, motivated head! Be the leader your people need you to be!

Stay safe out there, my brothers and sisters - and Happy Halloween!
