Trust and Confidence- sets the grounds for what our team is built on. We as a multi-jurisdictional team answer to a board. The commander attends all training’s and currently still completes the physical agility with the guys/gals twice a year. Our trust and confidence comes from being part of the team. The bigger picture is that nothing leaves training and training isn’t ended without questions that are worked out. The hardest thing in a department is the drama created by mouths running. The easiest way to end that is remove the problem and the rest of the team will treasure that.
