Hello members and friends. Thank you for electing me to lead our Association this year. I’m honored to follow in the footsteps of Chief Allen Baldwin who skillfully steered us through one of the most difficult periods in our history. As I mentioned during our convention, I’ll have more to say about that during our Fall Booster Meeting in Limerick PA September 24th.
Already we find ourselves busy with the challenge of a new FEMA Firefighter Safety Grant to support our Responder Safety Project. We are working with the Fire Administration to begin some more research on lighting and helmet improvements.
We hosted a policy discussion with trusted governmental affairs representatives to address the spiraling out of control struck-by incidents. Our task is how to raise the level of discussion about this topic to our federal government.
We hope see you in Limerick where you can learn more about our plans and visit with one another in person. We need your help. Yes, we have a job for you!
As for me, I look forward to serving you with anticipation.
