With the first Sunday being April, and the next being during our last day of the WORK Conference, we have decided to hold our next sermon on Thursday, March 29th. We’re sorry about the short notice. We look forward to seeing you all there.
The Senior (wo)Man
An open discussion about our expectations of our senior firefighters.
Are we, as senior firefighters meeting expectations of our CO’s, and perhaps even more important, our newer firefighters.
Company Officers: What is expected of us?how can we improve?
Senior FF’s: what is expected of our senior officers and less senior firefighters?
Personally, as a firefighter, I feel my role is supportive. We support the citizens by delivering top notch service, as would be expected from a professional. We are supportive of our company officers, limiting their ever-growing work load. Finally, we support our junior guys by mentoring and forwarding all the lessons we have learned through experience. We should be setting high expectations by focusing on fundamental training. Probation should never be given, it should be earned. Are we succeeding in our organizations or failing?
Brothers and Sisters
Please join your LSF chapter 0930 March 4 at Nates 306 S Main St Buda TX 78610. We will be discussing expectations. I want to discuss expectations of fire fighters coming out of the academy all the way up to the expectations of Assistant and division chiefs. Since we will be discussing expectations of our peers, I would also like to talk about ownership. Are we meeting our own expectations?
Tonight at 6pm local time to Fire Engineering Talk Radio. Our president Zach King will be a guest tonight speaking on Family life and the fire service.
On behalf of your board (Brad, Sandy, Kyle, Ryan, Justin, and Zach) we would like to formally announce that we now have a training scholarship fund for LSF members only. The Fund, as it stands right now was made possible by classes we were able to bring in, but most importantly through your renewal dues. That's right, by renewing your dues for 2017 you have made it possible for chapter members to attend classes in the region. For more information on the perimeters click on the scholarship application on the training page.
