Northern Virginia Fire Rescue Leadership Development Institute "NVFR LDI"

Northern Virginia Fire Rescue Leadership Development Institute "NVFR LDI" Northern Virginia Fire & Rescue Leadership Development Institute (NVFR LDI) Offers Premier Learning Targeted at Advancing the Region's Elite Officers.

The Northern Virginia Fire and Rescue Leadership Development Institute (NVFR LDI) is an innovative residency-based curriculum that has been developed to address the particular leadership and management needs of the fire service. The institute is held annually in or around the Northern Virginia Region. This year The NVFR LDI will be hosting two distinctly separate programs geared towards targeting the leadership and management functions required for officers of the fire service. During the week the students will live on-campus, beginning the day early with physical training, attending lectures throughout the day, and working until late into the evening, completing assignments and conducting practical exercises to culminate their learning. These programs have been developed to empower fire officers with skills and abilities to enhance the leadership and management characteristics which they have already demonstrated in their own organizations. The programs are not intended to address remedial skill training; but rather to take emerging leaders to a new level of performance. The NVFR LDI contracts the highest quality nationally recognized leadership experts to deliver cutting edge leadership concepts. This program creates an environment that simulates the pressures and stresses that officers will encounter as they supervise personnel through high quality role-playing exercises that will give them the opportunity to put into practice the new skills that are presented. The NVFR LDI experience demands a candidate that has demonstrated a desire to improve their own performance as a strong leader. They are individuals that their department believes will become the future leaders of the organization. They are individuals that will embrace the opportunity to improve their leadership skills for the good of the organization. Candidates need to have a well-rounded and diverse background that can contribute to the classroom experience and ultimately will be a benefit to their department after graduation.

Mission: Leadership through Empowerment, Encouragement, and Excellence.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department Fire Chief Butler shared his personal story concerning PTSD and mental health with the #NVFRLDI2019 Company Officers class.

Front-line officers asked the Chief during their round table discussion how they can help team members facing mental health issues. Suicide is a real concern that public servants are facing daily. Part of the classes assignments are to research Line of Duty Deaths and trends affecting the fire service. Suicide rates among public servants has been on a steady increase over the past several years. It is something the company officers have all had to face even in their young careers.

Command Officers up early and are learning about what happened 156 years ago in Gettysburg.

Command Officers are taken on a "Staff Ride" on and around the Battlefields of Gettysburg. The ride is facilitated by Chuck Burkell who presents "Leaders Intent". The ride is designed to discuss, critique, and apply demonstrated management and leadership skills. Using real history provides a palpable connection to today's leadership challenges.
