Recapture the Love of the Game

This is a two and a half day classroom style discussion of a variety of topics that relate directly to a Company Officer’s position. The primary goal is to enable the Company Officers to reignite their love for the job and find new ways to successfully deal with the challenges they face each shift.

The instructors are other Company Officers from across Texas who will facilitate discussions with the class participants. The discussions are driven by the Company Officers in attendance. This is a great practical class for the newest to the most senior Company Officer in your department.

Company Officers' jobs include
  • Getting the Job Done
  • Promoting Safety and Avoiding Hazards in the Workplace
  • Building Teamwork and Cooperation Among Their Companies
  • Developing and Nurturing the Skills of Fire Fighters Under Their Direction
  • Keeping Various Records and Preparing Reports

What IS the Office Symposium?

This high energy program will consist of MULTIPLE topics presented in rapid-fire succession. There will be opportunities for discussion, feedback and thoughts. Each session will tie the topics together. The training will culminate in the final wrap up session.

This program begins and ends with a reminder of the first day we were firefighters and the Love of the Game! Topics Include:

  • Love of the Game
  • Emergency Management
  • Personnel
  • Risk Management
  • TIFMAS
  • Finance
  • Planning
  • Prevention
  • Report Writing
  • Legal Aspects
  • Diversity
  • Customer Service
  • Mentoring & Coaching
  • Communications

What the Office Symposium is NOT

The Symposium is NOT a “top down” lecture series of Chiefs telling Company Officers what they are doing wrong. This is a peer to peer event where COs from other areas of the state will lead attendees in discussions of their experience, ideas that work and mutual challenges all COs face. There will be a Chief in attendance but they will be there as a resource and sounding board for attendees.
