The Staffing Office Talks About You Know What (Staffing)

Episode 24 – December 20, 2021

ON THIS EPISODE:  The Staffing Office joins us to discuss the ins and outs of staffing the largest fire department in Utah.

Captains Chad Simons and Brandon Boshard, along with guest host Operations Chief Dusty Dern explain the challenges of filling 111 seats every day and the policies necessary to make that happen… including mandatory staffing.

We hear how a shift in the department’s staffing paradigm may have created a heavier load for the Staffing Office, but helps us provide better service to our communities.
