Side Alpha Leadership

This podcast will explore all aspects leadership in the fire service. I want to find out what makes a good leader. What attributes do good leaders possess. In my quest I will interview leaders in different occupations.

Mar 6, 2023

This month I speak with Stephanie White. Stephanie is an 18 year veteran career firefighter in the Washington Metro area. She hosts a podcast on Fire Engineering called "5 after Midnight" Stephanie and I talk about EEO in the fire service and how it falls short in the fire service. Although we follow the laws there are gray areas that EEO does not account for. As firefighters and officers we must navigate the gray areas. Strive to be good human beings and trust that each person on your shift has you back during an emergency.

We discuss moving forward in the fire service and how to attract new firefighters of all sex, race and religions without having politicians change physical entrance requirements to achieve their vision of a diverse fire service.

We close with being a mentor and leader for the next generation.
