USFA’s Chuck Burkell Receives the IAFC President’s Recognition Award


Congratulations to the National Fire Academy’s Chuck Burkell, recipient of the International Association of Fire Chiefs’ (IAFC) 2009 President’s Recognition Award.


Chuck was recognized by the IAFC for his long-standing commitment to enhancing fire service leadership.  He was presented the award last week at the Fire-Rescue International conference held in Dallas.


In announcing Chuck as the award recipient, IAFC President Chief Larry Grorud said, “Through your dedication and service as an educator, mentor, friend and champion of emerging fire and emergency service leaders, you have made a difference in the lives of an exponential number of officers, the firefighters and EMTs they lead, and the communities they serve. You are truly a leader of leaders and are therefore, rightly honored.”


Chuck is a Training Specialist with the NFA, responsible for the Executive Development curriculum, the Executive Fire Officer Program (EFOP), the EFOP Applied Research Project process, and the Harvard Fellowship Program.


Congratulations Chuck!


The United States Fire Administration recommends everyone should have a comprehensive fire protection plan that includes smoke alarms, residential sprinklers, and practicing a home fire escape plan.
