Summary/abstract:
  • The Farmington Fire Department (FFD) has not had a Deputy Fire Chief (DC) for more than five years. The position was eliminated for budgetary reasons but will be re-instituted in the next fiscal year. A modern and updated job description was needed to meet the current needs and expectations of the Department, community and the fire service. The purpose of this Applied Research Project (ARP) was to create a modern DC job description by using information gained by researching the following questions: (a) What should the role and responsibilities of the Fire Chief be? (b) What should the role and responsibilities of the Deputy Fire Chief be? (c) What should the qualifications be for the Deputy Fire Chief? An action method of research was used. Information was attained through internet searches, textbook reviews, other fire department's websites, personal communication, extensive review of other fire departments job descriptions, and an online questionnaire. National industry standards were also reviewed though the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The results of this research showed that the old DC job description was out of date, insufficient, and below the standards of other fire departments. Recommendations identified from the literature review, online questionnaire, and personal communications included the Fire Chief maintaining ultimate responsibility and oversight of the fire department, and the new DC position being operations based and having requirements related to time on the job, level of certification, and level of education. A new DC job description was created using the information gathered from this research. This job description will be a solid starting point for the new position to begin but should be reviewed every two to three years to ensure that the description is still accurate and meets the needs of the organization.

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The Des Moines Fire Department (DMFD), like most fire departments across the country, has a long history when it comes to their promotional process. The problem is that the DMFD has not evaluated the knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) necessary to become a District Chief after several reductions in force and reorganizations. The purpose of this research is to identify the knowledge, skills and abilities that are necessary for an individual to acquire prior to becoming a District Chief within the Des Moines Fire Department. By identifying these KSAs for the District Chief position, it provides one key avenue for an individual to demonstrate their promotability to the next level and the Fire Chief the guide to make a good selection. Descriptive research was employed to answer four research questions: (a) What are the District Chief's knowledge, skills and abilities identified by the industry models; (b) What are the District Chief's knowledge, skills and abilities identified by departments of similar size to Des Moines Fire Department; (c) What are the District Chief's knowledge, skills and abilities that exempt members of the Des Moines Fire Department identify as important; and (d) What are the District Chief's knowledge, skills and abilities that non-exempt members of the Des Moines Fire Department identify as important? A review of literature, DMFD's and other departments District Chief job descriptions, industry models and the administration of a questionnaire sent to all members of DMFD and other fire departments was utilized to identify important KSAs for the position of District Chief. The results identified the KSAs for DMFD's District Chief position that can be incorporated into a promotional process that will assist the Fire Chief in determining the best individual for the position.

The role of developmental experience in the career development of fire chiefs in the United States

Author(s):Jones, Warren D.
Description: 210 p.
Publication Data:Fort Collins, CO : Colorado State University. Fall 2007

Summary/abstract:
  • This study examined the career experiences of fire chiefs. It goes beyond an examination of the traditional technical competencies and time in position elements of a fire chief's career development by focusing on specific experiences that produced change in their leadership and management behaviors. These are called developmental experiences. The audience for this study is fire chiefs, those that aspire to this position and other fire service professionals seeking to better understand the career development of fire chiefs. The research approach used was qualitative and the methodology was multiple case study using narrative analysis technique. Developmental experience has emerged as an experiential learning strategy that improves a leader's ability to adapt to and positively influence organizational success under conditions of change. The literature indicates that positive changes in leadership and management behaviors derived from developmental experience come from challenging on-the-job experiences, which result in personal learning and changes in leadership and management behaviors. The results of this study indicate that the 14 participants described nine common themes that met the definition of developmental experience in accordance with the Center for Creative Leadership developmental experience model. The participants furthermore described 26 examples of personal learning in seven developmental experience themes and 23 examples of changes in leadership and management behavior in four developmental experience themes. Two developmental experience themes, (1) the first fire chief and (2) hardship produced the strongest learning and change in leadership and management behaviors. The results of this study challenge the conventional fire service career development systems in place today It recommends that (1) developmental experience opportunities be made available to fire service personnel much earlier in their careers, especially for those who display leadership talent; (2) that more focus be placed on leadership and management experience in the early career; (3) that learning from hardship be incorporated into leadership development; and (4) that more opportunities be provided to learn political skills outside the confines of the internally focused fire service world.

Summary/abstract:
  • The problem was the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District (FFFPD) had not identified the components of an appraisal system for the position of Fire Chief. The purpose of this research was to identify the components of an executive performance appraisal instrument integrating roles and responsibilities, leadership traits and skills, and performance measures for the position of Fire Chief with the FFFPD. This was a descriptive research project utilizing three research questions: (a) What are the roles and responsibilities of a Fire Chief as defined by superiors, subordinates and peers? (b) What are important leadership traits and skills for the position of Fire Chief as defined by superiors, subordinates and peers, and (c) How is the performance of a fire chief assessed as defined by superiors, subordinates and peers? A feedback form (Appendix) was developed to gather data and to provide information to answer the research questions. A convenience sample of 105 participants was used and descriptive statistics were utilized to calculate and interpret the data generated. The results identified management of finance, operations, policy, public relations and administration as the primary responsibilities of fire chiefs. Desired skills included: communication, decision-making, interpersonal and problem solving. Desired traits included; integrity, honesty, approachability, dependability, decisiveness and confidence. The components of an executive performance appraisal were defined as; goal development, measurement of role fulfillment, assessment of leadership skills and traits, and an improvement action plan. Recommendations included development of an executive performance appraisal incorporating assessment of the aforementioned roles and responsibilities, leadership traits and skills, goal development and an improvement plan. Future research recommendations included: (a) a more detailed analysis of the differences between perceptions of subordinates, peers and superiors, (b) a more thorough comparison between successful corporations and the fire service, and (c) an analysis of the positive effects of actual executive performance appraisals.

Summary/abstract:
  • Corporate America is in the midst of dramatic change. Organizations are becoming flatter, leaner and more aggressive. The direct cause of this change is competition. Corporate Executives learned that the customer requires good quality service, quality products and to be served as a customer, not just a dollar sign. If the customer cannot get the desired results from company X he/she will go to company Y. Fire service leaders are now learning this same lesson. The current buzz word in the fire service is "customer service." It is not uncommon for cities to seek out alternate methods of fire protection. The public fire department is no longer the sole provider of fire protection services. Private companies are now providing fire protection to cities and rural communities across America. The purpose of this study was to outline the skills the executive fire officer will need to operate in the 1990's and beyond. The content of the paper reflects on the fire service from the viewpoint of corporate America and from the viewpoint of local government. I took information gathered from a macro view and attempted to design a curriculum of experience and education that the executive fire officer needs to lead the "fire service corporation."
