Marine, Airborne, Ranger, Firefighter: The Case for Effective Small Unit Leadership in the Fire Service

This presentation is about small-unit leadership skills for the company officer in the fire service. The presenters will draw comparisons to small-unit leadership in the military and discuss what a young corporal or sergeant does to effectively lead a group of three to four with limited information, compressed timelines, and insufficient resources. Those traits and skills needed to transition between direct supervision and task-level action are the absolute bedrock for success on the street. And make no mistake, success on the street does not happen without success in the firehouse, and that’s where leadership begins.
