Summary/abstract:
  • The problem is the Elgin Fire Department assigns individuals to function as Acting Battalion Chief without providing a structured program to prepare them for responsibilities and challenges of the position. This has resulted in an inconsistent approach to preparing individuals for this important leadership role. The purpose of this applied research project (ARP) was to research and develop a draft program and recommendations for an officer development program for Acting Battalion Chiefs. The action research method was utilized and a copy of the draft program is provided in the appendix. Research questions identified the planning process for an officer development program, the applicable national and state standards, how other fire service organizations provide officer development, and what the Acting Battalion Chiefs and Battalion Chiefs of the Elgin Fire Department believed to be important components in an officer development program. The procedures included a literature review, requests for program documents from other fire departments, an external widely-promulgated feedback instrument and an internal interview. The results identified a planning model and several specific components for officer development. Recommendations included the immediate implementation of elements of the draft program in appendix G and H as well as several mid-range and long term recommendations.

Summary/abstract:
  • The problem researched was the lack of Union City Fire Department (UCFD) personnel desiring to promote to the chief officer ranks; potentially causing the department to go outside the organization to fill positions. The research purpose was to identify the reasons for this reluctance to promote to chief officer within the UCFD. Through descriptive research, questions concerning reluctance to promote into management in the private and public sector including fire departments were answered. Research was carried out through literature review, interviews and questionnaires. The results identified the reasons for reluctance to move into management. Recommendations were made to acknowledge the problem, develop career development guide, address compensation, lack of bargaining representation and provide more support to chief officers.
