Using Fire Department Culture to Build Your Team with Jason Caughey

There’s a lot of talk in the fire service about the culture. It’s important, which you already know. It’s even celebrated in many cities.

But one thing that’s more dependent on the culture of your department than you might think is recruiting.

This is especially important if you need to recruit volunteers.

Luckily, it’s possible to build the culture you want to see, if you address the issue specifically.

My guest today has some ideas on teambuilding by developing a positive culture.

Jason Caughey is the fire chief at Laramie County Fire District #2 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. He’s also been the fire chief of Gore Hill Fire Rescue in Great Falls, Montana.
