While “positive” headlines are always good, it seems much of today’s media is focused on the not so positive. More and more “A FIREFIGHTER” is listed in the bad news headline-regardless of if the FF was on duty or not.
Unless you choose to ignore the news (which sometimes can be therapeutic) you have seen fire chiefs being confronted in dealing with issues that have happened in their station and/or involving their personnel.
Human or Inhuman Behavior ?
The greatest challenge and responsibility any boss has is to insure their personnel are safe. On the fireground. While training. While responding—-and in quarters. Unfortunately “in the firehouse” and “in quarters” issues have made some very nasty headlines-and more importantly, outcomes.Firefighters under the command of a company officer or chief officer who are treated in a matter that is counter to what the chief wants, what policy dictates or what local, state or Federal law allows.
A FIRE CHIEFS SOLUTION: The Safety, Health & Survival Section of the IAFC is hosting a very unique Fire Officer Bullying & Behavior Train the Trainer Program In Atlanta on August 5-7, 2019. (F.R.I. M-T-W)
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
-Local Gov’t Human Resource Personnel

The #1 fire service headliner today is fire station behavior and bullying-and the Fire Chief ALWAYS becomes part of the process when the accusations come in.
*When the Fire Chief is asked “What training have you provided your company officers related to fire station behavior training?”—-this training is a home run response!
