Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless,
but planning is indispensable.” Today’s fire-based EMS environment demands that leaders plan
for all-hazards incidents and provide resources for active violence incidents, community health
programs and be agile to meet local needs. Leaders need an efficient planning process that identifies
vulnerabilities, delivers a step-by-step path to make a change, and the metrics to demonstrate results.
This session will teach you how to do so and build a capability using tasks, activities, and benchmarks
and apply them into the Capability Development Planning process.
