Emerging Leaders Program - Blackstone

April 28, 2018

Blackstone Volunteer Fire Department

318 Church St.


Course Description: The American fire service has done an exceptional job of developing its officers and leaders with excellent training in the areas of fire ground attack, and other topics. However, today's volunteer fire departments have become a complex business requiring future leaders and officers to blend knowledge base of fire ground operations and also an equal blend of knowledge related to long-range planning, people and personnel management, and conflict resolution. This Emerging Leaders program introduces attendees, who are the "future of the fire service," to information related to leadership, professional conduct, ethics, core values, social media, personnel management, long-range planning, and other critical topics. This entertaining and interactive session is a must-have for any fire service leader.
