Dave Statter has an interesting story about Baltimore Fire Chief Jim Clack and his presence on the Watch Desk. He posts, talks back, and answers questions. "It is a forum where few fire chiefs have dared to tread," notes the blogger. No kidding. Social media and online channels are most certainly not for the faint-of-heart. "There’s no laws in this place. Anything goes! It’s Thunderdome!"1

I keep up with the Baltimore City forum on TWD on a regular basis. It’s pretty damn impressive that he allows people to ask him anything, and he addresses the issue(s). He he doesn’t have an answer, he tells them, rather than BS’ing. It’s the responsibility of the person asking the question to “keep it clean”. But, it shows that he’s not afraid of confrontation as well as showing he’s open for any suggestions the members might have.
