Run-to-the-Curb is Top Story

Entry Img

It’s been more than a month since my presentation at FDIC and my live Internet radio talk show on FirefighterNetcast from the show floor, but a lot of exciting things have happened since then.  Feedback from my show about the importance of storytelling in the fire service with special guest Chief Tom Merrill was tremendous […]

@FireRECRUITER: Make the Right Investments

Entry Img

The following article tells of a small city that is threatening to stop collecting a voluntary public donation that has brought thousands and thousands of dollars in mission-critical equipment to their combination (paid/volunteer) fire department.  Apparently, the threat is in response to a dwindling number of volunteer firefighters in their department, between 5 and 10, […]

@FireRECRUITER: It’s EMS Week – Roll With It!

Entry Img

From www.FireRECRUITER.com: In honor of EMS Week-2010, I thought I’d promote the (dare I say) sexiest video I’ve ever seen come to volunteer recruitment and retention. “Roll With It!” is a part music video, part movie trailer — full-on high energy – high impact web site for the recruitment of fire and EMS personnel. Celebrate EMS Week […]

FireRECRUITER: The Art of Speed-Recruiting

Entry Img

If you had just 30 seconds to convince someone why they should join your volunteer fire department, what would you say?

What would your message be? Do you have a standard sales pitch that you use for just such occasions? Can you even say hello in 30 seconds?

I recently had the opportunity to coach and practice some speed-recruiting exercises with the Doyle Hose Co. 1 in Cheektowaga NY. They had been invited to be a part of career day at the local high school in their response area and they invited me to join them.

Fire Chief Blogs His Way Through Fire Academy Experience

Entry Img

Not only is he hanging it out on the line for all of his firefighters to see if he’s got the right stuff to be considered one of their own, but he’s exposing his fire academy laundry for the public to see through his blog. Both take a lot of guts for a 50-year old fire chief and I give him a lot of credit.

It’s good reading and contains fire service and life lessons for all of us. Check out “On Scene with Car 1.” See for yourself.

Creating a Clearinghouse

Entry Img

Patience is some times not one of my better virtues. I’ve been kicking around the idea of creating an online clearinghouse of recruitment and retention resources for quite some time. Needless to say, it’s an area of the fire service that I’m quite absorbed in but I’ve always waited for someone else to create such a […]
