Learn how to build resilient teams, navigate workplace conflict, and more at the Fire Chiefs Leadership Seminar

Oct 12, 2022

There is more to being a firefighter than just putting out fires. Firefighters also need to be mentally fit due to their uniquely challenging work conditions. The Fire Chiefs Leadership Seminar — scheduled for Dec. 7-8 in Monterey — equips fire chiefs and fire service personnel with the tools needed to build stronger, more resilient teams and keep their communities safe.

The seminar also provides numerous opportunities to learn from other colleagues and policy experts, as well as form invaluable support networks.

This year's seminar will cover a range of topics, including statewide emergency medical service issues, conflict resolution, behavioral health, how to implement diversity and equity in succession plans, and more. Additional information is available in the “program at a glance” section of the seminar webpage.
