From the Chief’s Corner: One-Size-Fits-All, But Not for ERCES… 

Chief Alan Perdue

By Chief Alan Perdue (ret.), SBC Executive Director

Posted on October 25, 2023

The idiom one-size-fits-all can be used to describe situations, items, policies, etc. that are intended to apply to a broad range of individuals. The term, as defined by Merriam-Webster, means:  “…applying to all cases or individuals without modification.” Of course, one-size-fits-all is not an exact fit for some individuals, nor, in the case of a policy, is it designed for every situation. Through my travels and experiences, I often see folks trying to apply the one-size-fits-all concept to the world of ERCES. Quite frankly: That doesn’t work.
