Christopher J. Naum and Douglas Cline collectively bring over eighty five years of comprehensive fire service leadership and operational experience within the areas of field operations, training, command and management.

Both are nationally and internationally recognized fire service leaders, having achieved highly rewarding and prolific fire service careers with significant achievements and successes rooted in the rich traditions of the fire service and firefighting, but tempered and extended by visionary thinking, leadership and borne on the principled foundation of operational excellence, firefighter safety, survival, training and development.

Through their collective writings, lectures, seminars and training presentations, on-going research and development and contributions through TheFireOfficer.com they endeavor to continue the proud heritage and tradition of the Fire Service through their contributions of training, awareness, education, skills development, leadership, knowledge, enlightenment, research, insights and sharing.
