This presentation takes an in-depth look at the roles and responsibilities of riding the right front seat on and off the fireground. Often, firefighters are not aware of the expectations that come along with this position. Many believe riding shotgun only deals with decisions while on the scene of emergencies. This is only one small part of a larger responsibility as the company officer. Company officers need to understand that not only will they be fire officers, but they become parental figures, coaches, counselors, and much more to their crew.
