If a certain word defines our identity and self-worth it is vital to know how we alter such word from its true definition.
We have the opportunity to mentor the next generation even before they get on the job, sometimes we do it without knowing it.
We cannot change the fact the fires are going to happen and that the citizens that pay for us to protect them, expect us to do something about it.
Everyone went home so who the hell cares?
Maybe the fire service needs to stop being that parent who tells their child, ‘I’m going to count to three. One….two…three,’ and does nothing.
If your “accidental outcome” is that the fire went out and no one got hurt, you are hurtling down a path for disaster.
Where is the disconnect? What about the message isn’t reaching every fire department? Why do we think we’re invincible?
Hey, it’s only skin grafts, what’s the big deal? You weren’t there so you can’t judge.
Relying blindly on technology without incorporating behavioral changes is like giving an M40 to someone who has never fired a rifle in their lives and expecting them to put every round in the 10-ring. It’s not going to happen.
Remember, you can’t call a “time out.”
