The Fire Family

This highly interactive, two-hour program delves deep into the foundation of marriage and family within the fire service. The program focuses on the reality that there exists two fire families. One is the station and department, and the other is home, spouse, and children. More often than not, these two “families” fight for time and attention, and while the firefighter is caught in the middle, the spouse and children live in the unique world of growing up in what is often the secondary role to the fire department, and station/shift life. The program also focuses on understanding what a true advantage there is to have both families for the firefighter, spouse, and children, and to consider several principles when navigating this unique life, including the importance of having a blueprint in the marriage, merging the two families socially, communication and compromise, the importance of PTO and the role humor plays.
