Yesterday, in the afternoon, there was the opportunity to get to know the EMS, Search and Rescue, and Fire folks in their HOT quarters.
The fire chief explained when he hires new people, he looks for people with "heart". People who have a passion for doing this type of work. "Heart" is so apparent with everyone we have come
across here, volunteer or professional employee. And both work very well together.
As was mentioned in summary at one of my training sessions, a participant said, at the end of the day, it is about the people. That could not be more true!
It was great to spend time with the Central 911 team and get to know them.
The next time you are with your volunteers, please think about this... do you know ANYTHING about their families or their interests??? Or is that not important for YOU to get your job done? It is important for you to be honest with yourself.
And never forget to
Remember the PEOPLE!
