- Health and Safety
As a service we must meet the challenge of protecting our firefighters against threats to their health and safety. Therefore, I will work toward integrating cancer and mental health training as a compulsory part of firefighter training through inclusion in standards and all fire service texts.
-Fire Service Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
I will work with our Human Relations Committee to develop best practice guidance that will be added to our member services and develop a cadre of subject matter experts who can provide our members with direct assist to assess and develop locally relevant programs.
-Strengthening the provision of EMS
I will work with our EMS Section to develop sustainable, mobile, integrated health care (expanded scope EMS) while ensuring that revenues from Ground Emergency Medical Programs across our Nation are not negatively impacted.
- Ensuring the sustainability of Fire Service Programs
I will be a tireless advocate for the sustainability of our grant programs, funding for fire service research, and our National Fire Academy.
- Integrating Technology to improve the provision of Fire Services
I will work with all of our Divisions, Sections, and Committees to establish a best practice guide to assist our members in identifying which technology would best serve the needs of their individual departments.
- Standardizing the use of data to support Fire Service viability
I will work with fire service organizations to research how our fire services are currently reporting workload data and economic impacts. This data would be used to develop a standardized approach to report fire service workload and contributions to accurately represent our value to communities' quality of life across all jurisdictions.
- Integrated approach to Terrorism & Homeland Security
I will work with our Terrorism and Homeland Security Committee to seek ways to continue supporting a cross-functional approach to terrorism, active shooter, and hostile events impacting our international community. This will be done with input from our member Divisions and Sections to assure a reasonable approach that can be adapted for Volunteer, Combination, and Career Departments.
