The program consists of: Leadership, Communications, Personal & Professional Development, Community Relations, Intergovernmental Relations, Human Resources, Legal Issues, Strategic Planning, Emergency Management, Code Enforcement & Public Education, Budget & Finance, Life Safety Initiatives, and is designed and intended for Command level officers and/or Administrators who have the responsibilities of supervising and administrating a Fire Department or Fire District. Congratulations to all the Chiefs!
