Type of Service: Career Survival Training
Rank of Commenter: Chief Officer

After 33 years of fire service work, and training, I can say this is the best class I have ever attended regarding an administrative function of my job. The content was delivered with poignant seriousness regarding the risks, and interjected with plenty of “civil service” humor to keep it fun. The instructors get what firefighters are all about, and how good people can make poor choices and end up in a lot of trouble. It would be great if this could be delivered to all academy classes, officer development programs, and chief officer professional development programs.
I don’t want to be a “spoiler” so I wont share the details, but the final testimony was incredibly powerful.
