Motivational quote: "You need to plan the way a fire department plans: it cannot anticipate where the next fire will be, so it has to shape an energetic and efficient team that is capable of responding to the unanticipated as well as to any ordinary event." --Andrew S. Grove

Thought #1: And you should use time between events for training and preparation---not use your fire department to mow lawns like some cities have done. Keep your people trained and focused on what they are intended for.

Thought #2: The other thing a fire department spends their time on is prevention training. For churches, we should find a way to be constantly involved with prevention training and preparation training. Prevention training as outreach, where we engage with the non-churched world, and preparation training, where we strengthen our church folks. Prevention is sometimes mundane, but sometimes big, preparation is the same.



Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
