ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of respect which should be established by the fire chief on his members in a fire department. The author explained that it is inevitable for the members to lose their respect for the fire chief who also shows no respect to them. He suggests that it is important for the fire chiefs to never allow themselves to personalize any process which causes denigration to every member in the organization.
