    Team building exercises? Whatever happened to training? You can't build a fire fighting team by climbing a wall or forging a stream or building a model car.

    true George but to do all the fore mentioned you have to be able to work as a team first. Now, that doesnt mean as you said climbing a wall or such, but anything that exercises team work and not individuality will be a good team exercise.

    Now, the hard part is getting anyone to do it. Specially if you dont have people who enjoy team work.

    You are 100% right with this one. From personal experience I can't color or paint inside the lines and I would grow fustrated from trying to glue it together. Once fustration hits I would snap the peices in half and throw it away.

    I personally think playing 52 card pick up is a much better team building experience.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    I had to go to a "team building" exercise on my public job once. We had to build a Lego car w/o the directions. Wasted two hours. Everyone treated it as a joke and it accomplished nothing.

    It makes me wonder when you look at the all of the potential "team building" exercises that are located within the four walls of the firehouse, why anyone would waste those constructive opportunities on corporate feel good activities. It is generally accepted that the FD is not like a corporation. Why would we want to expose FF to this loony stuff?

    How ironic is it that this guy finds what he is looking for pertaining to team building and then keeps all the information for himself!?

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.
