From Our President
As I transition into the role of President of the Kentucky Association of Fire Chiefs, I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to fill this challenging role. I would like to kick off my term by extending a special note of thanks to outgoing President Gregg Bayer. This organization has been blessed by Gregg’s leadership and for his willingness to truly represent our mission by being an advocate for the leaders of the Kentucky Fire Service. I am grateful for the vision Gregg brought to this organization and for his guidance through the development of our strategic plan. This plan will help guide us for many years, ensuring that we strive to provide education, information, unity, and support to firefighters across the Commonwealth. Thank you Gregg.
Congratulations and welcome to all new officers of the executive board. Thank you for your willingness to serve in our association. I look forward to meeting with you soon virtually to discuss opportunities and ways we can continue to move forward.
To all of our members, I am certain that each of you continue to routinely face challenges both personally and professionally as we navigate through unchartered waters. Keep your head up, shoulders back, and stay focused on protecting your members and the communities you serve. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance. Thank you for all you do.
