President’s Message

Ours is the organization that allows current and former chief officers as well as active, associate, and business members to join.  You have the opportunity to have your department’s concerns heard.  To ask for or to provide advice so we can hit the benchmarks that make us all a better fire service.  We are the organization that has a voice at the County’s Public Safety Communications Advisory Board.  We are the organization that pushed for the County’s purchase of the thawing unit vehicle that can be used by any department.  This is the group that has sponsored numerous training seminars over the last 25 years.  This is the association that provides the leadership to the Fire Service Working Group at the County level Terrorism Task Force.  And the Working Group has done its job in using the UASI funding that it received to provide our fire departments with equipment such as haz-mat decon equipment, chemical protective suits and evacuation skeds, water rescue equipment and cold-water suits, active shooter protective gear, and the training that was required to operate.
