A Glimpse at our Winner
Early in 2013, Jay Stalnacker, BCSO Fire Management Officer, challenged his organization to use the ‘Leading with Courage’ campaign as “a guide to develop our internal special operations leadership development program.” Over an 11-month period, 75 special operations members from fire management, SWAT, and search and rescue completed a 3-part leadership development program. This interdisciplinary team experience “provided a consistent and cohesive message of followership and leadership through the entire organization.”

Eyes forward

Looking Forward
Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing with you leadership nuggets and best practices from both groups. In January, we’ll kick off the 2014 campaign: The Resilient Team.

Congratulations, BCSO Special Operations and Minidoka Ranger District, on a job well-done!

BCSO maintains statutory responsibility for all wildland fire, mountain search and rescue, and special operations.
