Five Alarm Leadership is a dynamic program that is designed to energize and motivate the people in your department to perform and excel in everything they do. This program outlines many of the common situations that fire departments and fire companies find themselves in and presents suggestions and solutions to those situations. Chief Lasky, a 38-plus year veteran of the fire service has experienced many of the challenges and hurdles that your fire department is facing. He has learned through his experience as a company grade officer, command-level officer, and executive officer, how to treat people, how to motivate them, mentor, to coach and counsel them, and in some cases discipline them, so that they want to come back and contribute even more to this great profession. Issues such as integrity, inspiration, interest, innovation, insight and initiative are all discussed and applied to life in the firehouse and on the fireground. Join Chief Lasky as he guides you through your most difficult but vital role as a leader in the fire service.
