ABSTRACT
The article focuses on management of fire departments in the United States. Firefighting is a unique profession in the sense that firefighting is a young person's job at the end of a hoseline and an older person's career when it comes to managing a fire department. A fire chief should be able to balance the number of young and old firefighters in a fire department.
