A careful scrutiny of existing courses of study, together with accompanying objectives, revealed a narrowness of thought later found to be typical of training philosophies in the fire service throughout the nation. A plan had been devised earlier to train both volunteer and professional firemen in courses operated by the State Bureau of Fire Mobilization and Control, but no consideration at all had been given to officer training and development of any sort. The policy indicated that officer training was a local responsibility and could be best managed by the fire departments immediately concerned, without technical training assistance from the Bureau. This was predicated on the belief that the fire service constituted a 'sensitive group' which would reject assistance from sources alien to itself.
