Every Department. Every Leader.
June 10, 2014
Dear Fire Chief Subscriber,
I'm very pleased to announce Chief John Buckman III has joined our team as Fire Chief and FireRescue1's Leadership Advisor. Chief Buckman brings 40 years of fire service experience to Fire Chief, ranging from serving as fire chief of a small volunteer fire department to his term as president of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. He's someone who understands the macro and micro issues facing fire chiefs, and we're excited to bring you his insights.

Chief Buckman attended last month's fire-behavior research burns in South Carolina. See what happened and how that data may change our firefighting tactics.
Rick Markley, Editor in Chief of Fire Chief and FireRescue1
