Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach


Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach presents a variety of leadership theories and explores how they apply to current emergency services leadership roles by giving examples of leadership theory application in the emergency services and suggesting best practices.

The authors address how leadership has evolved from the theories “position and authority” to more contemporary approaches, in which leadership is expressed in terms of influence relations, servitude, risk agencies, and transformational change agents.

Developed for higher education programs that include a leadership component, Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach is appropriate for EMS, fire services, law enforcement, and emergency management courses. The text would also be an ideal resource for department-specific training programs, especially for officer development.

The author team brings their extensive experience in emergency services, military application, and leadership research to this text. All of the authors are involved in higher education levels and serve in leadership capacities in various arenas.
