February 10, 2018 - We released another episode of our podcast, "5-Alarm Task Force," this morning with a longtime follower and friend, Chris Tobin. In this episode, Chris talked about the importance of multiple levels of mentoring in the fire service. Even after 8 years with his current department, he still considers himself the "rookie" in the firehouse, always seeking to learn from those with more experience. On the other side of this coin, he has recently re-established his connection with a nearby volunteer fire department and works hard to share what he has learned to the newcomers and others there. We also discussed the importance, especially with the hustle and bustle of today's society of establishing strong mutual-aid or automatic aid agreements wherever and whenever possible. Chris shared his perspective regarding what often impedes the establishment of those close ties and how they can be overcome.
And don't forget, this Monday, we'll be sitting down with members of the University of Miami-Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Care Centers medical staff, along with Assistant Chief Todd Leduc of the Broward County Sheriff's Office - Fire/Rescue Division, to discuss the Center's work with Broward County firefighters and their cancer initiative. That podcast is scheduled for release on Thursday, February 15th.
Then on Friday, February 16th, we welcome Deputy Chief Steve Prziborowski of the Santa Clara County CA Fire Department. He will be discussing, 1. Courage Under Fire - Being the Best Officer You Can Be. 2. Prompt Others for Success and 3. Establishing Expectations & Holding Others Accountable. This podcast is schedule for release on Monday, February 19th. You won't want to miss it!
