With more than 120 years of working with fire service leaders, the Western Fire Chiefs Association knows what great leadership looks like.

That’s why we’ve developed a unique solution to executive recruiting in the fire service.

Active shooter and hostile incidents are sadly becoming more frequent in our society. The natural response to these crises is to quickly identify possible solutions to avert future tragedies. While this is an understandable and critical course of action, we must not impulsively solve one safety issue at the expense of another. Case in point, many are questioning the relevancy of fire drills, the use of smoke alarms and other fire safety practices that limit door locking capabilities.
