About the Author & Book:

The Code. The Evaluation. The Protocols: Striving to Become an Eminently Qualified Human" is written by Jocko Willink (along with Dave Burke and Sarah Armstrong), a retired Navy SEAL, author of multiple books on effective leadership and teamwork, self-discipline and mindset, and former commander of the SEAL Team Three's Task Unit Bruiser. www.joko.com

The book is divided into three parts: The Code, The Evaluation, and The Protocols.

In the first section, Jocko revisits his original principles for leadership and success, emphasizing the importance of discipline, accountability, and teamwork. In the second section, he explains how to conduct an honest and effective self-evaluation, identifying strengths and weaknesses and developing a plan for improvement. In the final section, he presents a series of protocols for achieving specific goals, such as fitness, financial success, and personal relationships.

About the BrotHERhood Initiative

Metro-Dade FireFighers IAFF LcoaL 1403 has developed a group of your peers called "The BrotHerhood Initiative" in an effort to assist the brothers and sisters of MDFR with needs that arise from circumstances beyond their control. It functions under the Local's Firefighter Charities for the benefit of their personnel both active and retired.

The group consist of brothers and sisters who are there as facilitators to help in the broad spectrum of issues that come with our profession. The issue can be as simple as a member needing help doing routine work around their house or a ride to therapy that they can no longer accomplish due to an injury or it can be as complicated as PTSD or substance abuse. The group puts together the member in need with the appropriate resource. At time, the resource might be as simple as a group of fellow firefighters mowing an injured firefighter’s lawn, on other occasions that are more complicated the resource might be a professional counselor.

The BrotHerhood Initiative will not be successful without everyone taking on the responsibility to watch for one and other. The fire service is our second family and we all get to know our fellow brothers and sisters as we work with them. We can tell when a fellow firefighter or officer is just not 100%; maybe it is a sick family member at home or just some relationship difficulties. Most of us just need someone to talk to and vent, be that someone. The BrotHerhood Initiative needs you to be "Our Eyes and Ears" out there. The BrotHerhood Initiative’s sole purpose is the well-being of our members and nothing else, we report to no one.
