Bursting The 3rd World Myth - Fire Engines Don't Fight Fires, They Are Just Tools To !

The word, “leadership,” especially in the ranks of first responders, is bandied about by many. And for all those that participate in this conversation, there are probably at least, twice or three times the number of definitions of what leadership is in emergency services.
