Join John and Rhett with featured guest Jason Hoevelmann. Jason created the blog A Firefighters Own Worst Enemy (http://firefightersenemy.com) around a class he taught at FDIC this year. We aren't which came first...the class or the blog but we are going to find out! We will be discussing the blog, more about Jason, his class at FDIC, and maybe even defining what is "A Firefighters Own Worst Enemy"! Jason Hoevelmann is a Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal with the Sullivan Fire Protection District, a combination department, and a career firefighter/paramedic with the Florissant Valley Fire Protection District in North St. Louis County. His experience spans more than 20 years and he has been an instructor for more than 15 years. About A Firefighters Own Worst Enemy The blog is based on a class developed by Jason that he will present at Missouri Winter Fire School and at FDIC 2010. Here is a brief description about A Firefighter’s Own Worst Enemy: A comprehensive look at why firefighters make bad decisions on the job and off duty. This class is designed to offer methods for dealing with your own problems and challenges as a firefighter and how to help officers assist their men and women with these problems. We will discuss why the same situations are killing us year after year and identify ways to avoid becoming a statistic. Finally, we will point out ways to enrich our own careers and personal lives, as well as assisting our firefighters in advancing their own careers and ways to help the organization improve and grow.
