NOW AVAILABLE!

Chief Dennis Rubin, a 40-year fire service veteran and author of Rube's Rules for Survival, offers his newest leadership text based on his tenure as chief of Washington, D.C. Fire & EMS. This fast-paced collection of behind-the-scenes stories and case studies provides the reader with insight on how leadership techniques can be applied—for better or worse—in a real-world setting where a new chief has to hit the ground running. Case studies also include discussion questions to stimulate additional perspectives on effective leadership methods and the pitfalls that can occur for those who hold the greatest responsibility. Whether you belong to a major metropolitan department or a smaller volunteer organization, Rubin's stories will provide a fascinating look at the dilemmas of fire service leadership today.
