2013 nationwide wildland fire leadership campaign launched

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

The National Wildfire Coordinating Group Leadership Subcommittee has launched its 2013 campaign: Leading with Courage. The campaign runs for 11 months (January 1 - November 30), with members of the wildland fire community working together to focus on a central leadership theme and begin the process of sharing leadership success stories and resources.

The campaign intends to provide an opportunity for wildland fire service personnel to focus leadership development activities on a nationally-sponsored, centrally-themed leadership campaign and recognize local leadership participation efforts.  By doing this, they hope:

  • To foster a cohesive effort to promote leadership across the wildland fire service.
  • To provide a template that can be used to encourage leadership development at the local level.
  • To provide a mechanism to collect leadership best practices and share throughout the wildland fire service.
