Battalion Chief John J. Salka, Jr., knows first hand the importance of effectively employing fundamental techniques.
He now has compiled the leadership strategies of the Fire Department into a practical, battle tested for leaders in any field called First In, Last Out.
He emphasizes the importance of leadership, efficiency and teambuilding.
Training is not the most important thing, it is the ONLY THING!
We in the fire service invest lots of our time and money in equipment, apparatus, physical plant improvements, service award programs and many other worthwhile expenditures. But all of this is wasted if we do not have a properly trained workforce that can safely and efficiently respond, operate and conclude every fire or other emergency operation they are faced with. Think about this;
TRAINING improves SAFETY
TRAINING reduces fire LOSSES
TRAINING enhances your IMAGE
TRAINING creates ESPRIT DE CORPS
TRAINING attracts new MEMBERS
TRAINING saves LIVES
