For some, FDIC 2014 may have been the only opportunity to see what the fire service life is “outside the box” that is our city, our town, our district, our company. This week we’re all home, all back in our boxes. Now what?
New students entering into the fire service deserve leadership willing to accept their brave questions without feeling their fragile egos are being attacked. In other words, don’t take it personally when you are asked “why?”
There’s a great video going around this week featuring John Salka at Andy Fredericks Training Days. Someone in the audience captured a snippet of what Chief Salka was saying and shared it with the rest of us who couldn’t be there.
