    Fire Chief The fire chief is the highest-ranking officer in the fire department. He or she is directly responsible for the efficient operation of the fire department, and has control of all of its personnel and activities. The fire chief has a say in various department functions such as: Fire safety education Fire protection EMS Disaster preparedness Department administration The fire chief may also provide technical assistance to the city manager or mayor, and represents the interests of the fire service when it comes to planning fire coverage. While all firefighters start as probies, they have the opportunity to work their way up the ranks to fire chief. As firefighters advance their careers, they likely to assume more responsibility in managerial or administrative roles. It becomes their duty to train and assist the next generation of hands-on firefighters, and to promote the interests of the fire service in their area of coverage. __________________________________________________________________________ Deputy Fire Chief A deputy fire chief is the second in command of a fire department. The job comes with significant responsibility; in addition to her own duties, the deputy chief takes the lead in the absence of the fire chief. The position includes a combination of administrative work and time spent in the field to keep operations running efficiently in the fire department. Job Duties A deputy fire chief supervises and coordinates the activities of her battalions, including responding to emergencies, providing proper training, managing firefighters, conducting training and ensuring that department policies and procedures are followed. She assists the fire chief in setting goals for the department, establishing policies and procedures, handling grievances, disciplining subordinates, meeting with union representatives, preparing the budget, and periodically reviewing equipment for safety and purchasing new equipment as needed. The job has a defined public presence, and speaking at schools, community events, press events and other meetings is often expected. __________________________________________________________________________ Assistant Fire Chief Assistant Fire Chief is applied to officials either second or third from the highest rank of fire chief. Assistant chiefs have administrative duties to support the everyday functions of fire stations. They rely on their previous experience with those functions to perform their duties. Assistant fire chiefs' responsibilities vary by department. However, they generally perform administrative duties such as budgeting, purchasing and hiring, as well as general supervisory and management duties over each fire company or battalion. They also coordinate staff and firefighter training, oversee daily department activities, and perform the duties of the fire chief in his absence. Bigger cities with large, multiple-company fire departments require their fire chiefs and assistants to carry more responsibilities. __________________________________________________________________________ District Chief Districts (Or District Chiefs)- This is another division that is most often employed only in the larger departments. A district chief is usually over several battalions. An exception to this does occur. Some cities will choose to not have “Battalion Chiefs” but will have a “District Chief” on duty. In Canada (or Houston) the term "District Chief" is applied to someone over several companies As you can see the application of the term “Chief” can be a little vague. Each city can be slightly different it comes to how it divides up it’s resources for supervisor control. __________________________________________________________________________ Captain The captain is usually the highest-ranking officer at the scene of an emergency, and will direct operations as needed. The captain may also speak on behalf of the company to the media or public. At the station, the captain oversees the day-to-day operations and training of the fire company. They receive reports from any lieutenants working at the station, and must make administrative decisions for the good of the team. Because of their increased responsibilities, fire captains must possess an exceptional level of management ability. A captain may also be in charge of a special function such as training or EMS. They might also speak for their company to the media or public. After promoting to captain, firefighters may be selected for a fire chief position. Fire chiefs are the highest ranking officers in the fire service, and usually assume command at the scene of an emergency. They may arrive to the scene in separate vehicles, commonly a kind of marked SUV, which can serve as a mobile incident command post. __________________________________________________________________________ Lieutenant The lieutenant is responsible for the emergency response of a specific company, including the management of resources and personnel. When they’re not at the scene of an emergency, a lieutenant may be responsible for supervising daily operations at a fire company and spearheading firefighter training. Firefighter training may include learning new EMS skills, or even how to create maps of local buildings and landmarks to use in the event of a fire. Because of their important role in directing firefighters, lieutenants must possess knowledge of scene operations and try to be more educated than their subordinates. In the absence of the captain, the lieutenant may assume the role of “acting captain.” __________________________________________________________________________ Station Officer Duties of a Station Officer A Station Officer (Operational) is mainly deployed to take charge of a fire station or an emergency appliance; provide training for Firemen/Firewomen; command and lead Firemen/Firewomen in emergency and fire protection duties; and take part in administrative duties, such as staff management and planning duties. A Station Officer (Operational) is subject to discipline and is required to work shifts, perform "on-call" duties and wear uniforms.
