The ECFA is happy to have a new resource added to our website that we feel will be a big help to new fire chiefs, and even help seasoned chiefs too. ECFA board members strive to bring useful information to our region, and one area that can cause a lot of confusion is what is required of a fire chief. Several of our board members teach Chief 101, and noticed that even veteran chiefs aren’t exactly sure of some of their critical duties in the administrative side of the job. We think all chiefs, Volunteer and Career, will find this information useful!
We’ve added the section called “Fire Chief Resources And Information” on our menu tabs. It is a direct link to the information developed by the North Carolina State Firefighters’ Association that lists several important tasks and deadlines that all fire chiefs are responsible for completing. From Rosters to Relief Fund requirements, department ratings to a great list of contacts, these guides give very useful information.
The guides are designed as a “quick start” guide and certainly don’t list every duty of the chief, but it is a great overview. The great thing about the fire service is that we usually share information. The ECFA wants to send a huge Thank You to the NCSFA and NC Association of Chiefs for their work on compiling the documents.
Head over to that menu section and download these great resources!
