My Flag

What’s your story?

It’s been a great, long, hot summer — causing me to take some time away from blogging to spend with my family and friends. Although I haven’t been writing much, I have been doing a lot of reading and observing. And, it’s my observation that the need for effective story telling in the fire service has […]

Run-to-the-Curb Radio: Chief Tim Sendelbach

Entry Img

It’s like “Run-to-the-Curb Radio” — but better! “Firefighter Storytellers” is a natural outgrowth from my popular “Run to the Curb” series — as it offers a radio show designed simply to facilitate kitchen table type discussions between firefighters. “Storytellers” is an open-format radio show in which listeners are encouraged to call in with their own stories of what brought them […]

Raising a flag about lowering THE FLAG!

Entry Img

It’s after Memorial Day-2010 and I’ve been working on this blog for about a week, in hopes of having it finished prior to the start of the holiday weekend but life got in the way and that didn’t happen. In retrospect, I’m glad I procrastinated. I’m glad I waited, because now, I think this blog […]

Run-to-the-Curb is Top Story

Entry Img

It’s been more than a month since my presentation at FDIC and my live Internet radio talk show on FirefighterNetcast from the show floor, but a lot of exciting things have happened since then.  Feedback from my show about the importance of storytelling in the fire service with special guest Chief Tom Merrill was tremendous […]

@FireRECRUITER: Make the Right Investments

Entry Img

The following article tells of a small city that is threatening to stop collecting a voluntary public donation that has brought thousands and thousands of dollars in mission-critical equipment to their combination (paid/volunteer) fire department.  Apparently, the threat is in response to a dwindling number of volunteer firefighters in their department, between 5 and 10, […]
