Summary of Government Experience

Responding to questions about staffing at the local fire department, Jonathan volunteered to write for the fire chief a series of articles to appear in the community's monthly newspaper. The purpose of the series was to educate the public on the technical aspects of how a fire department works and how it is different from a typical business, and thereby elevate the public's understanding and opinion of its firefighters. Jonathan developed a proposed a year-long series of articles pertinent to the community. Article titles included:

Mutual Aid Agreements: What they are; how they work; why we need them
OR-OSHA 2-in/2-out Rule: its applications and implications
Staffing: Minimum staffing policy; the good, the bad, and the ugly
Structural Organization: Who does what
Wildland/Urban Interface Issues: Strategic approaches; defensible space
Training: What, why, where, and how
Public Education/Public Information: Functions and distinctions
Reserve Firefighter Program: Why we have it, how it works, what it costs; benefits of funding it
Department Of Public Safety & Training (DPSST): Purpose and functions; professional credentialing
Non-emergency functions of the fire department: What they are; who does them
Holiday safety challenges; cold weather concerns

For each article, Jonathan researched the topic from sources provided by the fire chief and found on the internet, and then interviewed the chief to get his professional perspective.
