Leadership is best accomplished with a Team of Leaders working together and towards the same objectives. Loyalty and commitment is critical because you will never have followership without strong leadership teams. I fully agree that the Company Officer is the most critical position in the Fire Service. The CO sets the stage each day and provides leadership and guidance in the Firehouse & in the streets. I couldn’t be more pleaseased with the A-Watch Officers at Escambia County Fire Rescue. They get it done every third day and set the bar high. Stretching on smells & bells and treating all calls as if it was the BIG ONE! I love watching them work on the fireground. Thank You!
