Admitting There's a Problem with Volunteer Departments with Billy Goldfeder

Code 3 - The Firefighters' Podcast

Volunteer firefighters make up most U.S. departments, by far. Yet the state of volunteer firefighting is in serious trouble. The NFPA issued a report in March that said there were 46,000 fewer volunteers in 2017 than a year earlier. There just aren’t enough people willing or able to answer emergency calls any more. And it’s not just limited to rural areas. Response times are going up and the number of people responding keeps falling. It’s past time to start finding solutions. Here to discuss that is Billy Goldfeder. He’s the deputy chief of the Loveland-Symmes, Ohio Fire Department. He is a prolific writer for several fire service magazines. Billy’s a member of the board of directors for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, the September 11th Families Association of New York and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.

Chief Billy Goldfeder from The Secret List

The NFPA Podcast

Major thanks to Chief Goldfeder for not only talking to us but doing it after an 11 hour car ride.  I think it is safe to say that the Chief is the first guest we've had to accomplish such a feat before our interview.  For those of you very few whom haven't heard of Chief Goldfeder and the Secret list, first what's wrong with you.  Go to firefighterclosecalls.com to see Chief's website and to subscribe to his newsletter, The Secret List.  Chief Goldfeder started “The Secret List” about 20 years ago. It’s updated continuously and includes news from all over the web on firefighter incidents and accidents— how they happened, what went wrong, what firefighters can learn from it so as not to repeat.  Jesse talks with the Chief about everything under the sun, from how he started the Secret list and what makes it so successful to what drives him personal.  It's a longer podcast than we typically do but we really think you guys are going to dig it.  As usual, please let us know what you think about the podcast by email Jesse at JRoman@nfpa.org. Also, subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, Google Play or whatever podcasting app you prefer.  If you feel like sharing use with your friends, we wouldn't complain.
