"I'm glad I finally took advantage of the opportunity. I've been a Chief officer for several years and should have joined at that time. Now that I am Chief I feel it is an obligation of my position to join and support the organization. Thanks to you and the association for all you do for the progressive continuous improvement of the fire service."
