Thursday, October 2, 2008
Chief James D. Rosseel was placed into nomination and was a finalist for the John M. Buckman III Leadership Award from the International Association of Fire Chiefs Volunteer and Combination Officer Section sponsored by Provident Insurance Company.
Unfortunately we received notification that another one of the applicants was chosen for the 2008 Award.
In the correspondence received from the IAFC they noted "On behalf of the IAFC Volunteer and Combination Officer Section, I would like to thank you for all your efforts in leading your organization, and the volunteer/combination fire service in general, on a path of continuous improvement. Thanks to your leadership, the fire service will continue to prosper and meet the challenges that are placed upon us. We encourage you to continue your innovative leadership programs within your department and consider applying for the award during the 2009 calendar year. Thanks for all you do to advance the volunteer and combination fire service in our country. Stay safe."
We congratulate Chief Rosseel on his nomination and we are very proud of his continuous dedication to our company serving as our Fire Chief for the last 13 years.
