Chief Richard Gasaway offers some more advice in this month's installment of the Leaders Toolbox to department's that are trying to offer their local elected officials the chance to really see what they fire department is about. Sometimes officials are either too busy or uninterested to accept an invitation to a live burns, but what else can you do to work with them?
The second part of this show deals with a fire service veteran who's struggling to figure out why the leadership is not the same as it was 30 years ago. He feels that the younger leaders being appointed aren't cut out for the job and Chief Gasaway offers some input and ideas as to what may be occurring not only in his department, but in department's across the country, and maybe even yours?
