For the eighth year, the IAFC received a grant from Motorola Solutions Foundation (MSF) to fund another year of the Fire Service Executive Development Institute (FSEDI). FSEDI is a program developed by the IAFC to provide new and aspiring chiefs with the tools they need to have a successful and productive tenure. Applications for 2020 are due no later than 5 PM ET on Friday, Dec. 6, 2019.
The members of the previous seven sessions have been very successful in achieving promotions, fire chief positions, and appointments to regional, state and national fire service committees and task groups. Approximately one-third of the previous class chief officers have achieved fire department fire chief positions or promotion to higher executive levels.
