RUNNING A FIRE DEPARTMENT WITH VOLUNTEERS?
All volunteer (call and combination) fire departments and fire companies are run…some run very well and some have been – and are being – run right into the ground. There has never been a tougher, more challenging time to be a part of, lead and run a volunteer agency-or a combination FD with volunteer or call members.
Fire service veteran and icon, Dr Harry Carter, retired from the Newark NJ FD Chief Of Training after 26 years, current Fire Commissioner in his home town and former volunteer Fire Chief – who remains very active as a driver/engineer volunteer Firefighter (43 years), has put together a great new book that, at only $15.00, (fifteen bucks) is a MUST have for every volunteer, call and combination fire department or fire company.
In his newest book, which is really and handbook for VOLUNTEER FIRE SERVICE LEADERSHIP (and those who wanna be), Harry Covers:
-Management Skills & Styles
-Retention & Recruitment
-Ethics, Mentoring and much much more.
Well worth so much more than the low price, this new book “Running A Volunteer Fire Department” needs to be in the hands of every chief fire officer, fire district commissioner and company officer who has any amount of volunteer/call members, as it’s loaded with lots of great-and time tested/proven-information.
