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.

Do you know the Melting/Failure Temperatures of Fire Service PPE?

Here are a few nuggets that you may find interesting:

SCBA Composite Bottles 1700 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 seconds and still function.

SCBA Facepiece: 446 degrees Fahrenheit Polycarbonate Melts (Fails at 20 kW/m2 heat flux).
"SCBA lens's exterior surface temperature reached 280 degrees Celsius (536 degrees Fahrenheit), about the midpoint of the range of published polycarbonate melt temperatures. The lens developed a significant hole, according to the NIST report." (A Mensch, G Braga and N Bryner, Fire Exposures of Fire Fighter Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Facepiece Lenses. NIST Technical Note 1724, Nov. 2011. The report can be accessed at www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=909917.

Firefighter Radios- The failures occurred while the radios were subjected to a temperature of 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit), termed Thermal Class II conditions.** The temperature is representative of a fully involved fire or conditions outside a room when its contents burst into flames simultaneously, a phenomenon known as flashover.

Fort Belvoir Fire and Emergency Services

The greatest part of our business....Our Community! Today, we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ by participating in #ReadAcrossAmerica at the Fort Belvoir primary & secondary school. The importance of reading for children Read Across America Day was created to get more kids excited about reading and we are pretty sure it gets our firefighters more excited.

We not only had the Fire Chief and 12 more firefighters, our administrative professional Mrs. Kramer and the US Army Fort Belvoir Garrison Commander’s Administrative Professional
Ms. Nieves joined us as we emphasized reading skills help children develop better communication skills as well as improved comprehension across all school subjects.

We also talked with many about the importance of a smile. You don’t have to have a Dr Seuss wocket in your pocket, just a smile on your face makes the world a better place!

If you were able to read this, thank a teacher, parent, and/or someone else that helped you learn to read.

Special thank you to Gettysburg Fire for hosting a visit to their station during the #NVFRLDI2019 Command Officer Staff Ride.

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.

Fort Belvoir Fire and Emergency Services Fire Chief Crutcher shared a powerful message concerning cancer in the fire service. As a cancer survivor himself, Chief Crutcher challenged the #NVFRLDI2019 Company Officers class to learn about their individual crews and provide a supportive team, remain vulnerable enough that crew members can feel comfortable talking about individual challenges they may be facing.

Chief Officer's from 6 of the 16 departments represented in this year's NVFRLDI provided a unique opportunity for the #NVFRLDI2019 Company Officer Class. The six Chief's took part in a round table discussion covering tough topics such as Mental Health in the fire service, cancer, morale and training. The Chief's shared personal stories in how they rose to the position of Fire Chief and the difficulties that can come from the job.

We would like to thank the Chief's from Arlington County Fire Department, City of Fairfax Fire Department, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, Fort Belvoir Fire and Emergency Services, Loudoun County Fire and Rescue and Stafford County Fire and Rescue for their participation in this years round table session.

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.
