The Norfolk County Fire Chiefs Association recently hosted a successful leadership seminar at the Bank of Canton Auditorium.
On Thursday, Feb. 10, the association welcomed over 100 attendees, representing more than 20 fire departments, to the “Step Up and Lead” seminar led by Deputy Chief (ret.) Frank Viscuso.
Deputy Chief Viscuso shared insights on leadership, as well as mental health. He discussed leadership traits and skills, as well as ways that firefighters can make a positive impact in their department and their community.
Deputy Chief Viscuso served more than 26 years as a member of the Kearny, N.J. Fire Department. He is a columnist for Fire Engineering magazine and the author of eight books, including the best-sellers “Step Up and Lead,” “Step Up Your Teamwork” and “Common Valor.”
“The Norfolk County Fire Chiefs Association is committed to providing professional development opportunities to aspiring fire officers in our county. We are very fortunate to have support from local businesses, which allow us to host seminars like this. Thank you to everyone who worked diligently to bring this seminar together and thank you to Deputy Chief Viscuso for sharing his knowledge,” said Chief Jeffrey Lynch, president of the Norfolk County Fire Chiefs Association.
