This program will delve into the phenomena, the Senior Man. Who is the senior man? He’s is the poster child for the informal leader and is the go to guy for all the questions. Often, he ’s the older guy. Been around, been there, done that always projecting confidence. Often, he is the go-between the company officer and the firefighters.

The senior man is respected by firefighters because he talks the talks while walks the walk.  He also takes charge of the fire house culture and is humble in nature. He wants to pass on knowledge to those with less time on. His mantra, “Pride, be the best you can be. Leave no one behind.”

For the company officer, the senior man is a resource and aide. To the firefighter he is a mentor and role model. Sharing great experiences in a highly interactive classroom setting many interactive exercises and activities, this program will improve the efficiencies of your firehouse having a GREAT senior man.
