Chief Officer Field Training Academy

There are many people in various ranks throughout the fire service that have a dramatic impact on the effectiveness and operational success of their department. Departments that utilize the services of a shift commander, battalion chief, district chief or other chief level officer in the field have a unique and distinct advantage over departments that do not. Chief Rick Lasky and Chief John Salka have developed this presentation titled the “Chief Officer Field Training Academy.” With more than 80 years of combined fire service experience in both volunteer and career departments, in every rank from junior company officer to captain, battalion chief, assistant chief and chief of department, these two seasoned chief officers will walk you through the numerous vital skills and abilities that field chief officers need to be successful. This is not an administrative chiefs program, but rather a detailed guide for field chiefs to follow from their first hour in the firehouse to their last assignment of the shift.

If you are a field level chief officer or you are on your way to being there, this program will provide you with a wealth of information from two chief officers who have been there and done that!
