FireRescue1 launches What Firefighters Want 2024 survey
The newest state-of-the-industry survey sharpens the focus on fire department leadership
By FireRescue1 Staff
FRISCO, Texas — FireRescue1 launched its annual What Firefighters Want survey on Wednesday, with this year’s theme focused on strengthening fire department leadership at all levels, plus how firefighters are taking ownership of their career development even amid a perceived lack of leadership at their agency.
The survey will be used to inform FireRescue1’s state-of-the-industry annual report, sponsored by ImageTrend, which will be published in July 2024 and feature expert analysis from fire service leaders.
Janelle Foskett, FireRescue1 editor-in-chief, explained why the team chose to sharpen the focus on fire department leadership for the 2024 survey:
The What Firefighters Want project is supported by the International Public Safety Data Institute (IPSDI), which helps with survey development and analysis efforts, and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), which offers promotional support.
