It’s easy to become jaded or cynical when the fire department administration comes up with a new list of core values.
They sound good, but you know and I know and the American people know that those core values get printed up on posters, sent around to each fire house, pinned to the wall…and then ignored.
They just hang there and fade…until the next administration comes along and issues new ones.
But what if these core values were actually put into practice somehow? What if they actually meant something?
Today’s guest has some ideas on how to do that.
Lieutenant David Bullard is a 20-year member of the fire service. He’s co-assigned to the Training Division of the Columbia County Georgia Fire Department and a Firefighter with Grovetown, Georgia DPS. In addition, he serves on the Board of Directors for the Georgia State Firefighter’s Association, he’s a National Volunteer Fire Council State Director and a whole lot more.
