The Basics: No Exceptions Leadership for the Company Officer

In the fire service we frequently discuss and encourage our members to continually train on and practice the basic, fundamental skills of our craft. We espouse the critical nature of mastering the most used skills for our success, the safety of victims and the safety of our members. Whether it’s moving a hose line, pumping a truck or forcing doors, the basics on a tactical level cannot be overlooked or minimized.

For officers in the fire service the basics of leadership and officer development should be just as important to us. The company officers are the individuals that determine the success and failures of our members, not only on the fire ground, but also in the firehouse. The development of our officers must be equal to our tactical proficiency to handle the demands placed on them daily.

From preparing and mentoring their members for promotion to establishing boundaries and expectations, this class will address several components of officer development and leadership that company officers can take and utilize right away in their daily routines. We will discuss some basic concepts for the company officer to use as tools to be as effective as possible in performing the many tasks he is assigned. Topics will include:

• Preparation for the position

• Setting expectations and boundaries

• 5 steps for successful delegation

• Setting goals and achieving them • Handling difficult members

• Discipline and the company officer’s role

• 5 Common mistakes company officers make

• 4 Principles for the company officer to follow and expect from his members

• 10 Commandments for the company officer • Leadership development and challenges

• Company Drills: Don’t make it so hard

• Command responsibilities for the company officer

• Communicating across generational lines

• First due tactical considerations

• Who do you work for? The buddy to boss and your boss to you.

Whether you’re a newly promoted company officer or a seasoned chief, these fundamentals are the core work that we must continue to hone and sharpen to be and stay successful and to meet the demands of our position. But, most importantly, these will ensure that we are meeting the needs of those that we serve with. After all, that’s what leadership is about.
