On December 15 we will be conducting a webinar with our friends at the Volunteer and Combination Officers Section (VCOS) of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC).
What do fire chiefs who have not promoted up through the ranks of a prevention division need to know about the often misunderstood fire marshal’s position? The fire marshal is often the face of an organization, the one who may bear the brunt of potential controversies from business and community leaders.
Join Fire Marshal Mike O’Brian and Fire Chief Dan Eggleston on Thursday, December 15, 2011 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm for this free educational program. It will take a close look at the position of fire marshal, the responsibilities of the position, the FM’s role in reducing community risk, and how best to integrate the position into department senior staff. They will also discuss the personality traits, key knowledge areas, skills, and abilities necessary for someone to be a successful fire marshal.
Anyone desiring an enhanced understanding of the fire marshal’s role within your organization will benefit from this webinar; the discussion will be particularly valuable to those chiefs who do not have a extensive prevention/FM background who find themselves managing a fire marshal or prevention division.
