"I would highly recommend this page to any and all firefighters regardless of rank. I'm a huge advocate in having positive attitudes around the fire house, on the fire and training grounds. The topics discussed on this page go above and beyond giving a great example of what a good attitude and good leadership can do to an organization. The number of bugles isn't what it's about. It's about leading from the front, having good relationships with the ones above and below you and keeping things positive around the fire house whether it's a volunteer department or paid department. This page helps you become a better leader! If you're a current leader or inspiring leader this page is for you."

Lieutenant Brock Biggerstaff

Southern Boone County Fire Protection District

"I want to give a shout out to Flashover Leadership. This group is on a mission to bring out the best in the current and future leaders of our fire service. Taking the lessons of many years and many backgrounds to foster an attitude that makes the individual evaluate their personal journey. It cannot be done without the involvement of those with a story to tell. I challenge everyone that visits this page to share that story. It is yours to tell, but if you do not share you are holding others back. It is time to give back to the fire service. Keep up the good work Brothers and as always, BE SAFE!"

Deputy Chief Scott Moore

Battlefield MO Fire Protection District

"The fire service is blessed with many good leaders. Creating that desire for someone to improve themselves and succeed is one of the greatest awards of mentoring "up and comers" in the fire service. Flashover Leadership is a great resource and huge part of my network to stay on track and positive. I have great respect to all involved with "FL" and recommend it to anyone wanting to grow as leaders, not just in the fire service, but in life."
