'Be nice': Chief Bashoor applies Chief Brunacini's mantra to interactions within the industry

With so many divisions among personnel, it's time we learn to embrace our fellow first responders

In this episode of the Side Alpha Podcast, Fire Chief Marc Bashoor considers the differences that exist among personnel in the fire and emergency services, some of which create debates and distraction among the ranks: volunteer vs. career, fire vs. EMS, and similar us vs. them divisions. Chief Bashoor extends Chief Alan Brunacini's mantra "Be nice" beyond our interactions with the public to include our interactions with our colleagues.
