Been wanting to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to attend your training in Owasso and observe the terrific hands on training that was being provided! I can't say enough about how valuable that training was to those who attended. I learned an incredible amount as well. I am looking forward to being a better training provider because of the experience! Thanks for sharing your K & S (knowledge and skills) - hopefully we can partner in the future!!!!!
Kristopher, you are now have been promoted in our group. Feel free to Run with it. I would like to get firefighters to post any staffing studys that support our position. Please send note to your other group to move over and desolve the old group. With your help we can make this one stop shopping for any info on staffing.
Our local used to remain neutral in political elections; our President took a stance to become issue advocates in the elections. It paid off we achieved one of the best staffing agreements in New England. It is clear that the elected officials want to have firefighters on their side. Even if your candidate doesn’t make it, others will take notice and want you on their side. The local took full page adds in the city papers protesting company blackouts of engine companies around the city. I will post the newspaper add later. We handed out flyers around the city and participated in Fire Operations 101 on a state level. For more info check out On the Road with Bobby Halton with Frank Ricci. On the education side check out the film “Smoke Showing” on staffing. 1) What strategies have worked for you? (2) If you have any staffing study abstracts, please post in our group. There are more repleys in the other staffing group as well as 2 films
Even though our official schedule is 08:00 to 18:00, the night shift starts rolling in around 15:30. The day tour guys sit in seats at the back door of the firehouse as the incoming guys have to walk through "the gauntlet". And the fireworks and fun begin.... We are probably the only profession where you can satisfy ALL your social interaction needs AT WORK!!! Anyone else out there feel the same? I LOVE THIS JOB!!!
