This series is for anyone who is or wants to be a first responder, which includes at least the following: law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, Emergency Room personnel, air rescue, and air transport.
Communication is a key to all occupations within the overall First Responder umbrella. Public relations is always a priority in all agencies. Good communication with each other and especially the public will certainly enhance public relations.
It is crucial for First Responders to learn how to communicate as quickly and efficiently as possibly in all situations.
Another key to being a good First Responder is: Don’t bring your home troubles to work!
Learning how to communicate at home and elsewhere off the job will help you tremendously on the job as well.
Therefore, please apply the principles you will learn in this book to the rest of your life as well!
Trennis E. Killian has been an Army Medic, high school English teacher, pastor, hospital chaplain, crisis counselor, police chaplain, and pastoral counselor.
All of these occupations have helped him to understand how men and women build and keep relationships. He also knows how they repair or destroy those relationships. He has also observed how people interact in all kinds of situations.
They also give him firsthand knowledge of how people live and act within each of those types of situations.
He writes in all of the following areas: Bible study, Self-Help, Crisis Preparation, and Christian oriented novels.
To be able to write so many different kinds of books, he has spent years of intensive study of Greek, an earned doctorate in counseling, and worked in many different occupations.
He writes all of his novels under the name T. E. Killian.
Because of his varied education and experience, his characters take on the characteristics and personalities of people who work in all of the occupations he knows so well.
Having been in many crisis situations over the past thirty plus years, he can write about them realistically.
He and his wife, Ann, live in Black Canyon City, Arizona, where he writes full time.
This is not a commentary, only a new translation of the New Testament!
Now there is a Bible translation that is easy to read, understand, and study.
This translation is unique in that it is arranged in a diagram form, which allows for easy identification of each of the points being made in any passage.
Good for Bible Study, sermon preparation, or just easy reading for understanding the Bible.
This is not the diagramed version. This version is in paragraph form as most other Bibles are.
The entire New Testament has now been released.
Look for the rest of the New Testament books or the whole New Testament in one volume.
Being a supervisor in any occupation is seldom easy and quite often frustrating. Being a supervisor in a first responder agency is hardly ever easy and too often it is downright frustrating.
I think you will agree with me when I say that being a supervisor in a first responder agency is both extremely rewarding and extremely challenging. This is why I believe that there needs to be a book and a training program specifically for first responder supervisors.
You are unique and you need to be treated that way!
This book, as in all of the books in the First Responder Series, is also the textbook for the class/training that I teach entitled “Leadership Training for First Responders.” The class/training is usually adapted slightly to accommodate the different type of agency taking it. For example, when I teach this class to a law enforcement agency, then all examples and scenarios will be law enforcement specific. The same for fire, paramedic, rescue, or other emergency type agencies.
