Unit III Homework Assignment
In this assignment, you will write two letters using the letter template available here.
On the first page of the template, write a letter about empowerment addressed to a new rookie firefighter on your crew.
Specifically discuss the empowerment of when and how to speak up, how to be tactful in speaking up to more seasoned
firefighters or officers, and the importance of all firefighters watching out for unsafe practices. The body of your letter should
be a minimum of 500 words.
On the second page of the template, write a letter to your company officer or a chief officer if you are a company officer
addressing a situation where you or a peer could have been injured. In the fire service, these situations are commonly
referred to as close calls, but solid situational awareness prevents a bad ending. You are required to explain the situation
that occurred and identify recommendations to prevent it from happening again (e.g., training, equipment changes, or
staffing issues). The body of your letter should be a minimum of 500 words.
