Fire Chief's Guide to Administration and Management by Richard Marinucci

Fire Chief's Guide to Administration and Management offers a range of information to enable the Fire Chief to learn and grow as a leader in the field. The career development model of the National Fire Academy, and the model curriculum of the Fire Emergency Service Higher Education (FESHE) group along with the knowledge of industry leaders in fire service education and training, served as a basis for this important text. With experience in a variety of positions and associations, Chief Marinucci, the former Chief Operating Officer of the U.S. Fire Administration, brings a real world focus to management principles including support elements such as change management, emergency response, routine issues, and financial and budget management. With a focus on the history of the fire service and eye on the future of the field, this book serves as a leadership tool for all administrators and managers who seek continued learning in their field.
