Fire Rescue Organization Guidance Course
June 23-25, 2017
Fairmont Hot Springs Resort

FROG (Fire Rescue Organizational Guidance) is a practical application course, going into more depth on some of the topics that we initially discussed during the VCOS’s Beyond Hoses & Helmets course.  This course focuses on three stratagems necessary in all successful organizations: (a) managing the processes, (b) leading the people, and (c) creating intentional organization culture.  Don't expect to be told what to do but expect to be shown through facilitated discussions and hands-on exercises.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:  If you are a leader in your department (Fire Chief, Chief Officer, Company Officer, Senior Leader), you need to be here!

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:  Participants work together to develop solutions to common leadership challenges through scenario and facilitated-based discussions. Topics include analyzing and understanding the fire department's people, processes and culture. At the conclusion of the course, participants will have practical guidelines, customized to their organization, which can be immediately implemented upon returning home.

WHY MUST I BE THERE: Because this course is facilitated by Chief Officers with real life expertise and because the curricula was developed by nationally-recognized fire service leaders from volunteer and combination departments across the United States with technical support provided by the U.S. Fire Administration – you won’t get a more thorough education anywhere….. AND it’s local and offered to you at no cost!!

The Montana State Fire Chiefs Assocation is offering this course at no cost to you. We will cover the registration fee as well as your travel (mileage, hotel room and per diem). 

Also, take this opportunity to get away with your family at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort.
