about the author
Joshua S. Chase
I am a husband, father, fireman, author, writer, public speaker, and combat military veteran from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’ve been in the fire service and have served as a firefighter for fifteen years. For the last three years I have served as the Lieutenant I’ve spent most of my career at the informal level of leadership. Meaning I wasn’t always a Lieutenant, but chose to step up, fill the gaps, and lead anyway. My mantra at work is pretty simple, “Do your job.”

A LEADERSHIP SEMINAR
We cannot continue to let the fire service suffer due to lack of leadership. Jump seat leadership focuses on training and educating personnel in the fire service to lead at the informal level. We cover basic principles of leadership and focus primarily on individuals who do not hold a leadership position, rather we equip and prepare the men and women in the fire service to lead in whatever position they hold. From the apparatus bay floor, to the office door, we are changing the fire service through strengthening informal leadership.
Learn the basic principles of formal and informal leadership and how they pertain to the fire service.
Learn practical steps fon how you can effectively and efficiently lead from the jump seat.
This should be in every firefighters reading list. It gives motivation to those who are doing it right and ways to fix those doing it wrong.
Author brings up some good points. Leading from the ranks can be a challenge. This is a solid framework for starting to emerge as a leader.
“What fireman need”
This book envelops the necessary information to push you to the next step of leading from where you are and why you don’t need a promotion to lead.
