Do you expect experienced members to retire from your department soon (or maybe you are one of the experienced members retiring)? How are the up-and-coming members preparing for their new role as an officer? Is your department having trouble recruiting new firefighters? Are you curious what the fire service could look like in 10 years? What service models may exist? Are we seeing a different model emerge in some parts of the country that may spread as recruitment and retention become a bigger problem? Join Craig, Jeff, and Dane for this month’s Tailboard Talk to discuss these questions! We have two retiring chiefs, Tim Stoll and Gary Schultz, preparing their “younger” people for leadership roles as they prepare to hang it up. We also have two officers, Craig Hebert and Danny Crane, from combination departments that reflect a growing trend to accommodate changing demographics and citizen expectations.
