Taking Charge and Moving Forward-Jeremy S. Rebok, FO, A.A.S, MIFireE
For 23 years, I have managed local and federal public safety agencies in Pennsylvania to streamline and improve emergency services they provide for their communities.Â Through my individual accomplishments and education, I have been commissioned by the CPSE reaching an accredited designation as a Fire Officer. Currently there is only 1300 designees worldwide, which make up a small percentage of fire service leaders. In addition to the fire service accreditation, I have conformed to reaching several national certifications, meeting benchmarks set by NFPA standards, to include Fire Officer IV. I accredit my strong leadership skills to the time committed in making the fire service better. I have designed this 4 hour program to specifically define the leadership traits needed to achieve success for the future.
This program will define the following:
- Why It Starts With You
- Organizational Development
- Organizational Management
- Attitudes and Morale
- Future Success Measures
