Motorola Foundation Donates $250,000 to IAFC Program (8/2/12)
The Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, announced a $250,000 grant to the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to support the New Fire Chief Executive Institute. The program will provide executive development and leadership training for the next generation of fire chiefs, who will learn best practices and skills from experienced chiefs and other experts seasoned in handling challenges and crises in real-world situations.
With the average tenure of a fire chief at three to five years, the institute was established to stem the turnover in fire department leadership and create stability within organizations to enhance safety in communities. Experts from the fire service and private industry will lead training sessions for new and aspiring fire chiefs on efficiency and effectiveness to improve the quality of fire and emergency services.
Participants will attend a national leadership conference to pursue networking opportunities and continue their professional growth. Graduates of the institute will form an alumni group charged with developing and sharing programs and tools to promote fire service leadership.
