Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

What you give others as a mentor, a public servant and as a friend costs you NOTHING. So why are we so reluctant to give freely? This is a major problem that we are facing in today's fire service. We are not paying it forward. The results of that is catastrophic to our future. In order to influence people "You must take your turn" as a mentor, coach, leader, an officer.

Developing the next generation of leaders is critical for tomorrow's fire service. We are at the time period that we are loosing the baby boomers who lived through America Burning. We are loosing so much experience and wisdom that it has the potential to truly devastate the future.

There are designated opportunities that you are not allowed to say "pass" as an officer. You have a "Turn" every time you have an opportunity to choose....choose to mentor, to leader, influence, teach or not... Choose to be a leader... Your power of one!

Join me at FDIC 2016 on Thursday at 1:30 pm in room 207/207 as we explore Developing the Next Generation of Fire Service Leaders!
