Fire Leadership Principles: The 10 Commandments of a Great Company Officer

Firehouse World 2018
During Firehouse World 2018, Deputy Chief of Operations for the Santa Clara County (CA) Fire Department, Steve Prziborowski, discussed fire leadership principles in his session: 10 Commandments of a Great Company Officer.

Bog by Hayley Aguilar of TargetSolutions

In a room full of fire service leaders, Steve Prziborowski, Deputy Chief of Operations for the Santa Clara County (CA) Fire Department, openly admitted he could have been a much, much better company officer – especially when it came to being a supervisor and a leader. He didn’t want to be “that guy”; meaning the designated adult that is supposed to at times say no, stop it, or knock it off. Instead, he wanted to be liked, wanted to avoid conflict and did not want to rock the boat.

During Firehouse World 2018, Steve Prziborowski shared his insights into fire service leadership with his 10 Commandments of a Great Company Officer.
