4B Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Local instructors complete ethical leaders,00ip class How do you handle inap- propriate behavior in school when your students are adults? Local fire instruc- tors recently completed a course about preventing and dealing with ethical issues. The class, Ethical Leader- ship in the Classroom, and was recently held in Graea- gle. Plumas County Fire Chiefs Association (PCFCA) sponsored and coordinated the course, which was open to fire service instructors from Northern California. The workshop is part of required studies for those who wish to become regis- tered and approved to teach state fire training certificate courses. It is meant to help trainers recognize the signs of an eth- ical dilemma, such as cheat- ing or harassment. Class topics included the concepts and theories of the ethical decision-making process, with hands-on ex- amples of classroom situa- tions in which instructors either encouraged or dis- couraged ethical behavior. Participants examined ethics, values, principles and morality. Instructor Mark Romer was part of the original team that developed the program; Romer, retired division chief of training for the Ro- seville Fire Department, has more than 35 years of experi- ence in the fire service and has taught throughout the state. Graeagle chief Ed Ward, who currently serves as INSIDE THE FIREHOUSE TOM FORSTER Assistant Fire Chief Plumas Eureka Fire Department president of PCFCA, partici- pated in the class. "Contrary to what you might think, this was a very interesting and engaging class," Ward said, "Mark did a great job covering some very difficult situations. He has great passion for the subject, and this helped keep the material interesting." Sixteen instructors from 13 fire departments complet- ed the class, including seven from Plumas County, and from as far away as Sacra- mento. Many also completed an eight-hour Regional In- structor Orientation (RIO) class the day before. Romer co-taught RIO with fellow state fire training em- ployee Mary Wilshire. This class covered how to qualify to teach different subjects, and how to process the courses through the state fire training office in Sacramento. RIO, combined with 120 hours of fire instructor training and the ethics course, is required to be- come a registered instructor teaching in the California State Fire Service Training & Education System Above, Sixteen instructors from 13 Northern California Fire Departments completed the course.

"We learned to handle these situations carefully and deliberately, and often in private," said Graeagle captain James Arevalo, "We also must be careful not to jump to conclusions before some investigation. Some situations are pretty straightforward, while some are more complex." The next step for the 'S 11 Law. from na-e 3B dizzy and light-headed. The .... ' "'" "- call was transferred to SLEMS.
