Well Bull its always tough when you have new recuits. Im a really tough chief when it comes to my guys, they have a tremendous amount of respect for me because of time & position, just like you. When I have rookies that are just coming off probation I have my senior officers set down and go thru our sog's with them and make them understand just exactily what there position is with-in our dept. Now dont get me wrong we are a vol. dept but we run a tight ship because of all the laws and bylaws that are out there...And it only takes once for a new recruit to do something wrong and it comes back and bites you on the butt...lol..I see where your coming from with all the training he has done but one thing he dosent have is your knowledge and experence...I thank if I were in your position and you felt comfortable with this individual I would allow him to get his feet wet under your supervision, if it comes a time when he or she is not familiar with the situation have them stand back and observe...I never talk down to my guys but i do make them understand without them getting upset and jeopardize a possible good or great fireman. One thing I done as I went up the chain of command is I would stand back and just watch my guys work and correct them on the spot if need be, it not only made me aware of who they are but what they were capable of doing...And as you know hands-on teaching is a whole lot better then reading out of some book or watching a film...I hope this helps brother and be safe out there...My Hats off to ya...
