Mr. Jeffrey A. Grote

Leadership walks hand and hand with respect. Firefighters and fire officers must respect the individual within a given leadership role for that individual to be able to lead. Additionally, the character trait of truth has equal merit. I base my ethical and moral foundations on the virtue of truthfulness. Without this component, leaders fall into the class of managers. I believe that leaders should stand next to the men and women of the fire service, not in front of or behind them.
