Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Psalm, 133:1 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”

Crew unity provides members with a sense of cohesion and confidence during calls, and a natural support network when returning to, or at, the fire station. A close crew is one whose members share a strong bond, loyalty, and commitment to each other and the department. Simply put, having strong social ties to unit members and leaders supports a unit’s readiness and overall morale.

The level of connection, trust and support that members have in their unit is the best predictor on how well stressors are handled, too. As a crew leader, you play an important role in your unit by guiding and encouraging your members as well as leading by example. Crew unity is priceless, and it’s worth the effort to strengthen those bonds at every opportunity.

STAY FIRED UP, and stay together!
