How s your job in the fire service working for you? Smooth sailing or hit some potholes? No career path is easy, but in recent years the fire service has experienced a bumpy ride with more EMS responsibilities, the economic downturn, and a changing public perception.. With 27 years of writing about fire chiefs and the global fire service, Janet Wilmoth, former Editorial Director of Fire Chief magazine, shares her insights on five key areas to navigate in the continuing evolution of the fire and emergency services.. General Session Speaker:.. Meredith Walker.. from.. Amy Poehler s Smart Girls at the Party.. -Change the World by Being Yourself!.. 'Being yourself is about the hardest job in the world.. And there are no days off.. We are often told to just be ourselves, but what does that mean and how do we do it? Being yourself means not always living up to the expectations other people have for you.. There is always somebody out there willing to tell you who you should be.. It is a challenge to be an authentic person in a world that is always more than eager to tell you to be somebody else.. Even in the honorable profession of firefighting, where bravery is a given - women still have to work to ignore those messages from all around us that say we have to be something more just to be enough.. Meredith will discuss what we can do to flex our mental muscles, and know that we are enough right now.. We change the world by being ourselves, and being ourselves is a life long quest.. '..

Presented by Cheryl Horvath, Division Chief, Northwest  ...   held-Register immediately.. Incident Safety Officer Overview (4-hour class).. This course examines the safety officer s role in emergency response situations.. The main focus is on operations within the incident command system (ICS) as a safety officer.. The participant will be able to identify and analyze concerns as they relate to hazard scene evaluations and communicate recommended solutions to the command authority.. Students attending should have a working knowledge of the ICS system.. Presented by Ed Nied, Deputy Chief, Tucson Fire Department (AZ).. Privilege of Leadership (4-hour class).. Leadership is often difficult and involves critical and tough decision making skills.. The fact is, being placed in a responsible leadership position is really a privilege and not a detriment.. Leadership is often referred to as stressful and involves a great deal of burden and pressure.. However, the cornerstone of exercising effective leadership is having a clear understanding of the definition of what a leader is and how to DO leadership things and not just SAY leadership things.. This program reflects on effective leadership behaviors that can be demonstrated when the situation calls for strong leadership presence.. People don t always need permission to step in and lead, when circumstances require it but when good leaders are given an opportunity to be in charge, they firmly take charge and recognize that leadership is indeed a privilege.. This workshop will explore a number of leadership lessons from history where those in charge were faced with difficult circumstances and demonstrated the ability to face those circumstances with confidence, competence and effective decision making skills.. By reviewing these examples and applying them to the fire service profession, participants will be encouraged to walk away with a positive outlook about leadership and followership regardless of the difficulties and challenges that leadership opportunities present.. Presented by Ron Dennis, Director of Training and Professional Development, and Billy D.. Hayes, Vice President of Marketing, Outreach and Admissions for Columbia Southern University in Orange Beach, AL..
