    The Power of WHY: The Critical Link to Success in the Modern Fire Service

    British-American Author Simon Sinek said, “If you hire people just because they can do the job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood, sweat and tears. When we pursue the what, we work for the money or the end product. When we work for the why, we work with blood, sweat and tears.” As firefighters, fire officers and fire service leaders, its critical that we identify our WHY and the WHY that motivates and inspires the actions and decisions of those we lead. This high impact, high-energy program will highlight the power of your WHY and the role it plays in individual and organizational success in the modern fire service.Garry Briese

    Optional Post-Con
    "Reading Smoke with Dave Dodson"

    Thursday, July 11
    8:00AM - 11:30AM

    Breakfast Provided

    Often, smoke issuing from a building is the only clue available to predict fire behavior and the likelihood of a flashover or rapid fire spread. First-arriving officers, incident commanders, and safety officers MUST know how to rapidly read smoke. In this session, Davd Dodson gives an overview of the reading-smoke process and provide some practice using actual fireground video.
