Alan Brunacini. Fire Ground Command With Fire Ground Command, Bruno taught an entire generation of fire officers and firefighters how to take people, equipment, apparatus, water, etc. He wrote the definitive book on the subject of putting out fires. Yes, others—Lloyd Layman, Manny Fried, and Bill Clark immediately come to mind—have written great books on strategies and tactics for combating fires.
But Bruno brought it all together in his seminal work, Fire Ground Command. Risk a little to save property. Risk nothing to save nothing. The property is already lost. Were there even discussions of risk management on the fire ground B. Before Bruno? More than that, he gave us the playbook for making customer service a focus for fire department operations.
Holy paradigm shift, Batman! Take care of Mrs. Approachability Probably the one book Bruno could easily have written. Instead he lived it. Go to a fire service conference or training course where Bruno was in attendance and you and all of your pals could not only get your picture taken with him, but he talked to you like you were the best of friends.
Because to Bruno, every fire officer and firefighter WAS a friend. What greater thing could be said about a man of his stature? Enough said? RIP Chief Brunacini.
