Firefighters Mourn Loss of Phoenix Fire Chief

Firefighters worldwide are mourning the loss of one of their most respected brothers with the loss of former Phoenix Fire Chief, Alan Brunacini, who died suddenly on Sunday, aged 80. Brunacini was the author of various books related to the provision of firefighting services including Fire Command, Command Safety, Timeless Tactical Truths, Essentials of Fire Department Customer Service and The Anatomy and Physiology of Leadership, but is most well known in the industry for his work on the Blue Card Incident Command Training System.

Blue Card, which is based predominantly on Brunacini’s book, Fire Command, has been adopted by firefighting organisations right around the globe, including Fire & Rescue NSW in Australia, and helps firefighters and incident controllers maintain effective communication with their crews, and continual accountability for those working on a fireground.
