Officer Training - Fire Department

"The Company Officer Academy" is the result of numerous requests and discussions the chiefs have had with chief and company officers across the nation concerning company officer training and preparedness. Many departments simply promote a new company officer and send them to a new assignment with no formal training. This often results in creating a more stressful and challenging situation for the new officer and the unit. Chiefs Salka and Lasky have put together a dynamic multi-day program that addresses the many skills and abilities that company officers need to have to be effective in the firehouse and on the fireground. The following list of topics are just a few from this new and exciting program series:Topics Include:*Leadership and the Leader, Manager, and Supervisor “traits” of the company officer*Communications, Motivation, Training, Team Building and Mentoring*What it takes to be that great Company Officer*The Roll Call: Setting Up and Planning Your Day*Your Firefighter’s First Day: The Company Officer’s Role*Your Company Officer’s First Day: The Chief’s Role*Riding the Front Seat*Values - Vision – Mission*Performance Evaluations*Coaching and Counseling as well as handling Disciplinary Issues*Awards and Records of Exceptional Performance*Fireground Responsibility: The Company Officer’s role in preventing LODD’s*The First-In Officer: Tactics and Strategy considering ALL staffing levels*Situational Leadership.
