    The Staffing Office Talks About You Know What (Staffing)

    The Staffing Office Talks About You Know What (Staffing)

    ON THIS EPISODE:  The Staffing Office joins us to discuss the ins and outs of staffing the largest fire department in Utah.

    Captains Chad Simons and Brandon Boshard, along with guest host Operations Chief Dusty Dern explain the challenges of filling 111 seats every day and the policies necessary to make that happen... including mandatory staffing.

    We hear how a shift in the department's staffing paradigm may have created a heavier load for the Staffing Office, but helps us provide better service to our communities.

    Build Strong Relationships at Home

    Build Strong Relationships at Home

    ON THIS EPISODE:  Health & Wellness Officer Captain Layne Hilton and Clinical Operations Director Darren Elkins of Blomquist Hale are back in the studio to discuss strengthening relationships at home.

    We talk about things shared between happy couples, and adjustments that can be made to strengthen a relationship that's struggling.

    How do you deal with the stress in your life? If you don't have an answer to that question... you may want to take action beyond listening to this podcast.

    The way we take care of ourselves directly impacts our intimate relationships, so it's important to look at the ways we self-soothe to manage our daily stressors.

    Throughout the show, Layne recommends listening to Dr. Brené Brown's, The Power of Vulnerability.  Brown provides information on the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness, and reveals how it is actually our most accurate measure of courage.

    If you're looking for someone to talk to, reach out to Blomquist Hale, Unified Fire's EAP provider. You can also reach out to Layne directly.

    Managing Stress as a First Responder

    ON THIS EPISODE:  Health & Wellness Officer Captain Layne Hilton, and Clinical Operations Director Darren Elkins of Blomquist Hale are back this week to discuss stress.

    Stress is the number one killer of firefighters, and we talk about why. Depending on how we relate to the stress we're experiencing, the consequences in the body are different.

    We talk about the importance of having a creative outlet to assist with stress management, the impact stress has on the brain and body, and of course we discuss resources and ways to find help for those struggling to cope with their stress.
