Chief (Ret.) Rick Lasky, Lewisville (TX) Fire Department; and Battalion Chief (Ret.) John Salka, Fire Department of New York

There are many people in various ranks throughout the fire service that have a dramatic impact on the effectiveness and operational success of their department. Departments that use the services of a shift commander, battalion chief, district chief, or other chief-level officer in the field have a unique and distinct advantage over departments that do not. With more than 75 years of combined fire service experience in both volunteer and career departments in every rank, these two seasoned chief officers will walk you through the numerous vital skills and abilities that field chief officers need to be successful. This is not a command chiefs program but rather a detailed guide for field chiefs to follow from their first hour in the firehouse to their last assignment of the shift.
