The Forward Firefighter Podcast

Episode 5

Lt. Bryan Keup

Waukesha, Wisconsin Fire Department

Team Before Self

In this episode, you will hear from Lt. Bryan Keup, a career firefighter from the City of Waukesha Fire Department.  My focus is usually on the volunteer side of things, but Lt. Keup has a good message to share for all fire departments, volunteer and career.  After serving in the United States Air Force Special Operations, his fire service journey started as a volunteer in the Village of Genoa City, located right next to the Wisconsin and Illinois state line.  Employed by the City of Waukesha Fire Department since 1996, Bryan is currently one of three Team Leaders of the Special Services team, which specializes in technical rescue and HAZMAT operations.  Complacency can be a firefighter's worst enemy, but Bryan has a great message to share that will keep our departments sharp and ready to respond when our communities need us most through a healthy culture and strong leadership in our organizations.
