KEYNOTE In the Event of a Pandemic, Break this Glass and an Alarm Will Sound In early March 2020, President Gary Ludwig stood up a task force of fire service leaders to address the issues the Coronavirus was having on the fire service. Fire Chief John Sinclair, IAFC President (2016-2017), was appointed as the Task Force Chair. This presentation will review pandemic operations, and the IAFC's efforts to prepare the fire and emergency service to respond. The session will focus on the activities that will be needed to address the ongoing threats to the world, and the changing role of fire and EMS agencies in response to the virus. The speaker will identify the strategies needed to protect the responders, meet community needs for emergency care, participate in the larger public health system response, and participate in regional efforts to address impacts and keep the health system functional.
GUEST SPEAKER Managing the Weight of All those Bugles: Stress and Leadership Every role in the fire service comes with unique challenges but one that is often overlooked is the role of the Fire Chief and the stress that comes with the position. This presentation reviews the impact of leadership on stress and ways to mitigate the risks.
