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.

LADDER PARLOR TRICKS. Messing with some OV team workflow yesterday and shooting ideas around. We were talking about using a long extension low angle ladder as both the access and roof ladder on an unwalkable pitch.

Someone floated this idea for heeling the ladder. It worked well. You can often just sink the heels in the dirt (my plan A), and I hate to lose tools to this - but always good to have multiple ideas and look at problems a different way.

Whether I love or hate an idea, I love firemanship, thinking through problems, and exchanging ideas. Maybe you’ll use an idea, maybe you find you won’t, maybe it leads to another idea another time. It’s all worth something....

Stay hungry. Get after it. Happy Friday.

"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.

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.
