Roseville Fire Chief Marcus Reed selected for Fire Service Executive Institute

The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) recently announced that City of Roseville Fire Chief Marcus Reed had been accepted into the Fire Service Executive Development Institute.

The Fire Service Executive Development Institute is a new leadership-development program developed by the IAFC to provide new chiefs with the tools they need to have successful and productive tenures. Chief Reed was one of twenty individuals from across the nation accepted into the program.

"Lately, we spend a lot of time talking about the challenges facing the fire and emergency service, but this group of leaders represents the opportunities ahead," said Chief Hank Clemmensen, IAFC president and chairman of the board. “Each of these officers has a proven track record as progressive and collaborative leaders.  I have no doubt that bringing them together in a learning environment will benefit us all.” 

Individuals selected for the Executive Institute made a one-year commitment to the program that includes advanced seminars and training in ethics, leadership, emerging trends, use of science and data, budget management, and labor–management relations. "I am excited for the opportunity to bring advanced ideas and cutting edge practices back to Roseville Fire," said Chief Reed.
