Officer Development & Leadership Success in the Volunteer Fire Service: Climbing Up and Down the Ladder of Volunteer Fire Leadership
Retired Chief Tom Merrill focuses on the unique challenges faced by volunteer fire officers on the firematic side of the organization as well as the administrative side. Merrill breaks down the expectations of the company officer and how to reach them in this three-hour seminar. Far too often, officers are elected or appointed and provided with very little or no training at all. They are left to “fend for themselves” as they try to learn the very jobs expected of them for the office they hold.
