Working Together: Effective Fire Service Administration for Fire Chiefs and Local Government Chief Administrative Officers

The Local Government Management Association of British Columbia (LGMA), in partnership with the Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC and Office of the Fire Commissioner, Emergency Management BC is pleased to offer a pilot educational program to address the pressing need for knowledge, skill development and administrative and financial leadership to effectively operate fire departments in BC.

The program will be held at the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George Office in Prince George from November 7-9, 2014.

The program, aimed primarily at smaller communities operating volunteer, paid on call or composite departments will support local government Chief Administrative Officers (CAOs) and Fire Chiefs to carry out their responsibilities in providing fire services to their community. It is anticipated that CAOs and partner Fire Chiefs will attend together. In addition, senior local government management who are responsible for working with their fire service(s) and deputy and assistant Fire Chiefs may also be interested in attending. Further regional programs are being planned across the province for 2015.

Cost: $250 + GST includes meals only. Accommodation arrangement to be made by participant.
