  • Never Out of the Fight: Hiring for Values

    Chris Langlois
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
       The biggest investment any fire department makes isn’t stations, apparatus or equipment, its people. When we spec out a new apparatus, we don’t just buy an engine because it has hose, a pump and a tank of water. We spend months, even a year or more, making sure it’s going to be just the right fit for our department. Compare that to how most departments hire or recruit new members. Career departments have potential candidates go through a written and a physical ability test to make sure they meet a minimum standard. An interview is conducted and often the applicant’s…

You’ve seen them, those firefighters walking around unaware of their surroundings. They’re unable to think for themselves; they’re ambulant but require outside direction. How do they get that way? What infects them and transforms them from thinking, engaged firefighters into brain-dead, disconnected zombie firefighters? It’s those micromanaging fire officers who drain the brains of our firefighters. Zombie firefighter image…
