    OPEN FORUM: 2016 Top concerns for professional drivers

    in Current Events

    OPEN FORUM: 2016 Top concerns for professional drivers


    It's 2016 and many of us are reflecting upon 2015 and so many of the events and issues which have taken place.  There were many highlight topics for 2015, including one of the most controversial of the year, the FMCSA Final Rule for the ELD mandate. Why are so many professional drivers up in arms over this mandate? How does it negatively affect driver wages?  And why do others say they can earn higher profits with an ELD?


    As we open up 2016 on AskTheTrucker "Live" we're not only going to discuss YOUR concerns for this year, but those plans to address them. What are your top issues for 2016?  Wages? HOS? Detention Pay? ELD's? Truck Parking? Regulations? EPA? But more importantly, what are your thoughts and ideas to confront those issues which seem to have a direct impact on the livlihood of professional truck drivers?   


    Join us as we enter 2016 on AskTheTrucker "Live" with our first broadcast of the New Year: Open Forum "2016 Top concerns for professional drivers."

    Episode 1218: Professional Volunteer Fire Service

    in Training

    When headlines appear featuring stories about volunteer firefighters embezzling funds from their fire department, it definitely hurts the professional reputation we work so hard to earn.


    Today, public safety agencies can no longer financially manage their operations with a checkbook and a pen. State and Federal requirements, in addition to insurance requirements now place more responsibilities on agency leaders to manage their volunteer fire and EMS organizations like a business.


    Tonight’s show will discuss financial reporting requirements and best practices for managing fire and EMS agency financial systems. My guest will be Dr. William William F. Jenaway, Vice President of VFIS Education, Training and Consulting Services; as well as President of the Board of Directors of the Congressional Fire Services Institute. We will focus on preventing theft in our volunteer firehouses and Dr. Jenaway will outline many important steps that should be implemented by the professional volunteer fire department to safeguard the department’s treasury and maintain accountability by department leaders.


    Examining issues and challenges faced by the volunteer firefighter today.  Being a professional firefighter has nothing to do with earning a paycheck but has everything to do with attitude, appearance, commitment and dedication. Hosted by Tom Merrill.
