Schmittendorf Selected to Deliver Leadership Training

Tiger Schmittendorf has been selected as one of only 25 firefighters from across New York State to be certified as an instructor of the newly developed
“7 Habits of Effective Firefighters” training program.

Customized specifically for the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs (NYSAFC) by Franklin-Covey, this “7 Habits” program is funded by a SAFER grant from the US Department of Homeland Security.

Schmittendorf will spend two days of intensive training at the NYSAFC headquarters in early January and will return at the end of the month to earn his certification as an instructor. He will be joined by Sean Crotty, past chief of the North Boston Volunteer Fire Company in Erie County, and other firefighters from across the state.

Following certification, the team of instructors will then provide the leadership training to fire departments across New York State.

Stay tuned to TigerSchmittendorf.com for exciting announcements about these training opportunities.
