If I asked you what is the most important character trait for a firefighter, what would be your answer? Bravery? Strength? Stamina? They all sound imperative, right? Perhaps, but there is more to it than those. What could outrank those three aspects?
Our guest on this, our 50th episode, is Captain/Instructor Chris Baker. In this podcast, Chris explains that it is your desire, no, hunger to learn, that will dictate the type of firefighter you are or will be. And mind you, this has nothing necessarily to do with climbing rank.
Chris' resume demonstrates that he "practices what he preaches." Moreover, he teaches it, as well. So join us as Instructor Baker, discusses education in the fire service, mentoring and what he sees for the future firefighter.
