Fire Commissioners Buck Heidrick, Jon Couture, and Dick Deleissegues present Battalion Chief Dave O’Brien with his Certificate of Completion of the National Fire Academy Executive Fire Officer Program. O’Brien completed the certification at
 the National Fire Academy campus in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Executive Fire Officer participants enhance their professional development through a unique series of four graduate and upper-division-baccalaureate equivalent courses. The Executive Fire Officer Program spans a 4-year period with 4 core courses. Each course is 2 weeks in length. Executive Fire Officer participants must complete an Applied Research Project that relates to their organization within 6 months after the completion of each of the four courses. Congratulations Battalion Chief O’Brien! Five officers at Fire District 3 have now completed the Executive Fire Officer Program.
