Fire Columnists, Experts & Staff

FireRescue1 and Fire Chief feature a diverse team of fire service leaders and experts, tackling topics that touch on every facet of a firefighter’s career, from the early days serving as a firefighter recruit at the Academy to training on fire-rescue operations to commanding incidents and, ultimately, the department.

FireRescue1 and Fire Chief columnists and authors hail from volunteer, career and combination departments, big and small, stretching across the country. They are experts in their respective fields, and many have advanced degrees and certifications to support their ongoing training. Making their mark in the industry, some authors run fire-focused training programs, while others speak at national fire service conferences, such as Fire-Rescue International and FDIC, or write books, like "Fully Involved Leadership" by Gary Ludwig and the "Pass It On" series by Billy Goldfeder. Some columnists also sit on the FireRescue1 and Fire Chief Editorial Advisory Board, with members who both steer editorial coverage and share their fire service knowledge and wisdom with readers.

Publishing content with FireRescue1 and Fire Chief is a competitive process; not all articles are accepted. Authors are vetted by the editorial team, with articles reviewed by team leadership, resulting in high-quality content that readers can trust.
