Thank you for visiting my election page as we work to win the election for the 2018 International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) Second Vice President. The IAFC is the premier organization for the fire service and I am honored to be asking for your support.
As a Fire Chief I know first hand the importance of building leadership. That is what the IAFC is at its core. The IAFC is focused on creating leaders for the fire service that can meet the needs our communities expect of us.
That is why my platform focuses on firefighter to executive health and wellness, ensuring tools for our members on implementing of best practices for community risk reduction and working to reduce the impact of fire on our communities, to the continued need for paramedics and firefighters who can meet the growing operational challenges in our communities.
The IAFC must ensure the continued study and implementation of cancer prevention, application of tools for the continued well-being of our staff with mental wellness, and the continued need for physical abilities through solid fitness programs. We must continue to partner with key associations, programs and federal programs in Community Risk Reduction and work to battle the Fire and EMS problem in the United States. Finally, we must make sure Fire Chiefs have the tools to recruit and retain the best fire service personnel that work for organizations that are agile to continue to meet the needs of our communities when they request service from our organization.
