SWFCA recently launched their 6 month leadership training coaching and mentoring program at the Oklahoma City Fire Training Center. The class was filled to near capacity for this inaugural class of 2017.
Participants traveled from other regions to take advantage of this remarkable training program.
State Fire Marshal Robert Doke welcomed the class to Oklahoma and emphasized the importance of leadership skills and training in all aspects of community. Also President Tom Bradley, Fire Chief of Stillwater Oklahoma and current President of the division spoke on behalf of the board of directors and state of Oklahoma about the decision to bring this unique opportunity to the IAFC-SW membership.
As your division elected leadership, we are committed to offering you the benefits you’ve asked for and deserve as a member of the IAFC.
Here is some feedback that we have already received after the initial 2-day classroom group:
The course was great. Honestly better than I expected
