The National Volunteer Workforce Solutions (VWS) team has created short how-to guides on a variety of topics to assist volunteer and combination fire departments with their recruitment and retention activities.
Speaking to Government Officials
We have created a template to assist departments in creating presentations for government officials. This PowerPoint is complete with directions in each slide's notes section on how to customize a presentation unique to your department. Please feel free to utilize this template, while referencing the “How-To” guide to create a professional and informative presentation for your next meeting with government officials.
