NFCA 5th Annual Leadership Symposium

March 28, 2020


Speaker: Deputy Chief Steve Prziborowski

Tile: Courage Under Fire: Being the Best Fire Service Professional you can be in 2020 & Beyond!

Course Description:
This session is intended for all ranks of fire service personnel (current and aspiring) -firefighter up to fire chief. Some may say we have a leadership crisis in today's fire service, not to mention the World in general. I also think it could t;e argued that we may also have a followership crisis in today's fire service, as well as the World in geneFal. For an agency, organization or fire department (volunteer, career, combination, etc.) to be successful, leadership and followership are both required. As a fire service professional in today's fire service, you must possess "Courage Under Fire" and continuously aspire to be the best you can be. The saying, "If I only knew then what I knew now" is the focus of this session.

Do you have what it takes to be a great fire service professional in the year 2020 and more importantly beyond? Personnel of ALL ranks will find some value to the information being shared and discussed, regardless of whether they ever want to promote.

Situations a fire service professional may face today can have severe consequences to the positive image of the fire service, their career, or the careers of those they lead or follow. If you are a Firefighter or Engineer, with no desire to promote, or no desire to be a part of the team or be the best you can be, then this session may not be for you. If you are an officer, and you want to be everyone's buddy, or never want to be "that guy or gal" when it comes to being the designated adult, then this session may not be for you. However, if you're willing to be the follower or leader you took the oath for when accepting the position, you will find some value to the information being discussed.

Current topics affecting the fire service, events that have occurred to the fire service (good and not-so-good), as well as personal lessons learned (some the hard way), will be shared and discussed in a positive and productive manner. Attendees, regardless of rank or type of department they serve at, will leave with numerous tips for leadership success!
