Drill of the Week: Leadership & Management

By Forest Reeder

Challenging leadership scenarios are featured in this week’s drill. If you are a company officer, acting officer, or desire to be an officer of your department, these are the types of “administrative fires” that you will have to act upon when you’re not on emergency runs. Remember to make your decisions in these situations in reference to your department SOGs, rules and regulations, or other applicable procedures.
