This study investigates the influence of transformational and transactional leadership styles of commanders in fire service organizations on organizational commitment and job satisfaction. A survey was conducted with the staffs of four fire stations in Gyeonggi Province. The results show that the charismatic characteristics of transformational leadership and the management by exception of transactional leadership positively influence both organizational commitment and job satisfaction. This indicates that the fire officers can be devoted to their organizations and be satisfied with their jobs when their supervisors give directions with charisma and vision and when they delegate authority to the fire officers except in particular situations.
