Fire Chief Resilience

Retreat Details

It is your responsibility to care for your department, people, and community as a Fire Chief. Between difficult decisions and the impact of influence, fire chiefs can feel like they are all alone. The best support system is often with fellow Chiefs who are walking the same path. Together, you can take the time to focus on personal and organizational resilience, while balancing an assertiveness that fosters trust at all levels of your organization.

This 3 day / 2 night retreat is held at our Eagle Creek Retreat Center in Idyllwild, California. Along with other Chiefs, you will strengthen skills so others will continue to see you as a respected, competent, and compassionate leader. You will also learn how to improve work-life balance, while creating a healthier culture for your department.

This retreat is exclusively for The Fire Chief. Other command staff should attend our Command Staff Resilience Retreat.

Tucked away in the mountains, together we will unplug from the distractions of daily life and keep things as natural as possible. Peace and quiet are essential to unpacking challenges and pursuing wellness. You will be able to take a deep breath of fresh air, let your guard down, and get away for a few days – focused solely on health and healing.
