Fire Coaching Fridays

Fire Coaching Fridays is a hour-long discussion in a casual, information sharing platform that engages questions and answers on a Friday afternoon.

Topics will be selected in advance and first responders can send in their questions. 

This will be held every Friday during FireShowsWest's Virtual Conference.

How does this work?

If you just want to join the discussion for a one-on-one with our panelists, here's the ZOOM meeting link to attend. Plan to carve out time on Friday afternoon to participate in this session.

The October 16th Fire Coaching Friday session brought together a great discussion with our three panelists about defining "honorable" behavior, specifically in the firehouse. Their perspectives and experiences can offer insight in how to handle "doing the right thing", even when it may ruffle some edges. Enjoy the discussion and give us your thoughts.
