Allen Baldwin, President of the CVVFA in 2019-2020 was elected President of the Virginia State Fire Chiefs Association. Chief Baldwin has a distinguished career in Pennsylvania and Virginia in the volunteer and career fire service. He currently serves as Deputy Chief/Deputy Director of the York County Virginia Department of Fire and Life Safety. President Baldwin’s career as an association leader was cemented when he successfully led the CVVFA through the COVID pandemic. He vowed, even as he and his family contracted the virus, that he would not accept COVID as an excuse for non-performance. As a result of his leadership, the CVVFA met virtually and all of its programs, budget and membership improved over previous years. The CVVFA congratulates Allen and stands ready to assist him in any way possible in his new venture.
