The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are pleased to bring you the second edition of Chief Officer: Principles and Practice, designed to help learners make a smooth transition from company officer to chief officer.
The Second Edition addresses both Fire Officer III and Fire Officer IV levels of the 2014 Edition of NFPA 1021: Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications, combining current content with dynamic features and interactive technology to better support instructors and to help future chief officers become problem-solving leaders for their organizations.
Today’s fire service leaders must prepare themselves and those they lead for the changes that are likely to occur. Powerful trends—including political, ethical, legal, and sociological—are likely to continue shaping the fire service, impacting department structures and roles in the community, and altering the demands placed not only on fire service leaders but on the personnel they lead.
Department leaders need to navigate changes that include demographic shifts, technological challenges, unforeseen court decisions, economic downturns, political turmoil, higher levels of emergency preparedness, and union-versus-management concerns. This new edition explains all of these concepts and more to build a solid foundation for aspiring chief officers. 8 1/2" x 11", 322 pages, full color photos and diagrams, softcover
