For three days last week, a dozen Firefighters from Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) attended the 42nd Annual Northwest Leadership Seminar. Sponsored by the Oregon Fire Chiefs’ Association, the seminar provided attendees with valuable information and practical skills on leadership for managers and supervisors.
Sessions included information on developing people skills, addressing budget challenges, encouraging great internal and external customer service, creating a vision to achieve goals, and successfully accepting and embracing change.
Portland Fire & Rescue is committed to developing future leaders here at PF&R. Workshops such as this help to promote Portland firefighters’ personal and professional growth by providing in-depth training and opportunities for interaction with other fire and EMS professionals from throughout the region.
