ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the impact of politics, media, and money on the level of professionalism of the fire chiefs in the U.S. The Fire Act has forced chief officers to be politically savvy. Magazines find themselves struggling to create content that is not outdated by four–week lead times. The metro departments and those in cities designated by Department of Homeland Security as terrorist targets will have the most power.
