Ask ANY supervising fire officer…. and the biggest challenge facing them isn’t always the fire scene-it’s the firehouse scene-and the troops we are responsible for.
It’s the “people” stuff. Good. Bad. Ugly…the people, our “Brothers & Sisters” and issues related to you and them -they are the toughest to size-up.. and the toughest to bring under control.
Gordon Graham and the crew at LEXIPOL have a no cost webinar coming up next week that will be well worth your and your officers (and those who want to move up) time:
