Dr. Richard B. Gasaway answers a question from a podcast listener whose department has faced budget cuts and asks members to do with less.
The listener says the department has cut staffing, causing a reduction in resources for structure fire responses. The listener asks how the firefighter can carry out the duties of those who have cut from the response, while still operating efficiently and effectively.
Gasaway talks looks at the issue from the psychological aspect of losing co-workers and the feeling that the bosses don't care. He also shares his experiences on how firefighter's can still operate effectively and accomplish the necessary tasks.
