Firefighter Training Podcast

This week The Firefighter Training Podcast asks the question, Are You Listening? This is a fireground based discussion on the variety of little things that you might hear and react to on the fireground regardless of your rank or position. This episode is good for a firefighter to a chief and everyone in between.

The episode was sparked by an article in the February Firehouse magazine by Retired Chief Don Abbott on Communication Clues. I do not discuss the article but it is a must read for any of my listeners.

We talk about:

  • Building sounds
  • Fire sounds
  • Responding sounds
  • Searching sounds and much much more.

The ask the chief segment is about cost per mile for operating apparatus.

The Just one more thing segment is about leadership listening to your people.
