You should treat the other firefighters in the same manner as you would want to be treated by your Crew Leader. You should not allocate tasks beyond their capabilities. You should listen to their concerns and deal with those concerns fairly and assertively. You should note down any points that may be relevant for the debriefing after the incident. You should honestly evaluate how you performed and how that performance can be improved.

Take the opportunity to lead team members in specific tasks whenever it arises. It forms good experience for moving on to become a Crew Leader and gives you a sound basis for taking a lead in the event of your Crew Leader becoming incapacitated.

Often in the NSW RFS we spend a lot of time waiting and not doing. Encourage your team members to think about the bigger picture and the integral part your team will play once the time comes to launch into action. Take this time to think of contingency plans and check on your team’s preparedness to take on the task. Get to know your team and take the opportunity to find out their strengths, weaknesses, ambitions and fears now rather than when you are in the middle of a stressful situation.
