The bulk of the fire service work is completed by companies making decisions - engine, truck, and rescue companies. Can we take basic lessons learned about teams and decision making from other industries and apply them to individual companies in the fire service? We think we can and we think the fire service could be even better at company development and decision making than it already is by applying what others have learned. Tonight, we will talk about 4 behaviors that can contribute to bad decision making and some interesting information Google uncovered about their most productive teams.

Also, do you know a firefighter or first responder who has made remarkable contributions to their local fire service?  Tell us who and why by providing a short video or a short essay and your nominee could be awarded a full scholarship to attend FDIC International 2016! 

Honeywell and DuPont™ Kevlar® have partnered to award 20 deserving firefighters and first responders with a full-paid scholarship – including travel and accommodations – to attend the industry’s premier safety and training event.
