The Ellington, Vernon, Somers, South Windsor and Broad Brook Fire Departments are proud to present:
American Fire Service Command and Leadership
A Seminar presented by
Chief Bobby Halton
Editor in Chief of Fire Engineering
Chief Halton will tackle the topics of command, leadership and service in his discussion that is aimed at officers and firefighters together. Topics include:
• What does it mean to “take command,” not just at the fire scene but also at the firehouse?
• How do you develop a vision of leadership and then translate that to motivation of your firefighters?
• How do we develop tactics and keep them fresh as the call evolves around us?
• What does it mean to be a firefighter these days? How do you preserve tradition and yet move forward with progress at the same time?
• With all of the challenges on the modern fire ground, how does a firefighter commit to success?
• Further topics to be discussed: The Moral Arbiter / Concept of Duty / The Strategist / The Mentor
