Absolutely not! I have seen and been a member of tight units where everyone can fall into a leadership position at any time, depending on the incident. Take for instance my current assignment. When I send out the deployment order, I will have unit members coming from all over the county and who ever arrives on scene first has a full laundry list of tasks that need to get moving before the rest of the team arrives. knowing the tasks, and being able to get things going is in itself leadership.
