Topic 1: Training
As the chief, you have required your members from different ranks to take a mandatory class on safe driving techniques. Some of the members have refused to take the class because they think it is a waste of time and a way for you to show authority with no cause. What would you do to the members who decided not to take the class? Which leadership style is most appropriate based on the decision you make?
Topic 2: Certification
Discuss the national assessment models such as National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (the Pro-Board), International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFASC), NFPA, or other agencies, as well as your state fire official in how they relate to approaches to firefighter certification. You may need to search the Web for additional information on these assessment models.
