This week the panel will discuss officer selection, career and volunteer and the promotional process in small or large departments.
Are we doing it right as a fire service? Would private industry select it’;s middle managers and upper level management this way?
The panel will talk about their interactions with outside agencies on the scene of emergencies. Power company, Red Cross, Local inspectional services, Rehab services, State and federal services. We will discuss some of the best (and maybe the worst) practices to help the IC deal with outside agencies.
The panel has touched on this issue before but we are going to talk about the greatest argument (or close to it) that has been happening in firehouse kitchens for years…….Fog nozzle or smooth bore.
We will also discuss supply lines, HAV or hydrant assist valves and all sorts of water supply stuff.
But after the argument starts on the hangout we are going to speak about the more important issue of getting quick water on the fire.
This week the panel conducts an exercise that you can recreate for your department very easily. We ask the following:
What three things should your department (or the fire service) START doing? What three things should your department (or the fire service) STOP doing?

This week the panel will discuss commercial building fires. Why are they different, what are the hazards? What do different departments do to address the differences? Is fire behavior different in these structures.
