Tip for Becoming a Conflict Competent Fire Officer

I want to provide some tips on how to become a conflict competent fire officer. One of the questions I am often asked is “How do you know it’s wrong?” The rules don’t cover everything there are a lot of gray areas.

For example maybe you’re at the station and people start to horse play, you start to think is this against the rules or is this wrong.

You already have your answer, if you think it’s wrong, it’s wrong. Now people say wait a minute there is no rule against that.

You’re the leader, you’re the supervisor its your values that are being challenged you represent that crew. When you think it’s wrong, it’s wrong.

That’s my tip of the day.
