Achieving Excellence in the Fire Service

The difference between excellence and ordinary in the fire service begins with the details. What makes someone good in this profession is not the amount of ribbons on their Class A uniform or the number of bugles on their collar. It is the execution and passion for the details for the job. In this class, we will look at what makes this profession the greatest job in the world and what will help us to always put the citizens first.
