The 2023 Fire Officer: Are You Up for the Challenge?

Friday, April 28
This class will help future and current fire officers successfully prepare for their positions. Having the weight of an officer's badge can be very heavy and overwhelming for many, especially those who have not adequately prepared themselves for the position or who are already promoted and didn't fully realize the challenges they would face. Topics such as leadership, teamwork, career development, mentoring, public relations, personnel issues, and administrative skills will be discussed, as well as situations that have occurred around the country that could affect a fire officer and fire department positively or negatively.'
Steve Prziborowski, Deputy Chief (Ret.) - Santa Clara County (CA) Fire Department
