This hour-long presentation will cover the meaning of command and control on today’s firegrounds. The session will provide you tools, tips, and processes that will allow the incident commander and the company officer to better interact with each other to ensure tasks have been completed and information is shared on the fireground.
You will be introduced to the tenets of Full Contact Leadership and how it applies to the fire officer and those who aspire to become fire officers. Understanding and addressing the often uncomfortable personnel conflicts and subordinate/superior relationships and their application to the fireground are a major focus. The steps to resolving personnel conflict are compared and applied to the familiar fireground evolutions with which most fire operators are comfortable--sort of a way to introduce a level of comfort into the uncomfortable areas of command and leadership.
