The basic unit in the fire service is not the firefighter but rather it's the fire company. The person in charge of that unit, the company officer, is vital at the fire scene as well as in the firehouse. This seminar will help company officers and those who aspire to be company officers to be prepared for the challenges they face. This seminar will also address the role of the battalion chief or shift commander.Topics to be discussed will include how to prepare for that big leap, when studying for promotion. What to expect when you take command, how you can transition from being the new company officer or chief to having ownership of the unit or battalion. Training your company or battalion, how to accomplish this critical ongoing task that will not only set you and your company or battalion apart from the masses but also keep everyone alive and safe. Finally and why we are all here, how to operate safely and effectively on the fire ground.
