FRI 2018 Quick Take: Providing results with fire chief leadership and risk management
People, policy, training, supervision and discipline help to minimize risks and keep firefighters safe
Fire service leaders are consistently being asked to do more with less. And, in the wake of increasing public scrutiny, even small mistakes could drain your community's already diminishing resources. Combining strong leadership with the principles of risk management can stretch your budget dollar and provide protection against situations that can prove costly in terms of money and reputation.
In this session at Fire-Rescue International, “Doing More With Less: How Leadership and Risk Management Provide Tenfold Results,” risk management guru Gordon Graham (Lexipol) and Deputy Fire Chief Billy Goldfeder, Loveland-Symmes Fire Department, offered leadership strategies for fire chiefs to effectively mitigate the risks of lawsuits, injuries, deaths, embarrassments, internal investigations and even criminal filings.
