Mike Brown - Saying goodbye!

Saying goodbye is difficult! Starting a new chapter in your life is exciting!

I will be saying goodbye to all of you as the Executive Director of the Washington Fire Chiefs on December 31, 2013. It was 9 years ago that I started this adventure to help your elected officers Serve, Educate and Lead this great association. I am also excited to pass the responsibility to Chief Wayne Senter who will begin on January 1, 2014 for a seamless transition. The WFC deserves your support and participation and when we are united the fire service is an incredible force. Do not miss an opportunity to be part of building the future of the fire service. The most difficult goodbye will be to Kathleen and Lori who bring joy to me on a daily basis. They love you and the WFC and work tirelessly to ensure goals are achieved. They are the best and they aren't going anywhere!

Update on Chief Dave Lafave

The WFC would like to update you on the situation with Chief Dave Lafave.  Join the WFC and keep him in your prayers as we hope for his speedy recovery.

Subject: Update Chief LaFave 12/9/13

Chief had a good day. He walked 11 laps around the unit which was 1 lap over the goal the doctors set. He talks a lot about the good conversations he has had with the folks he normally would not have had the opportunity to have long conversations with, he is very grateful to everyone for their concerns and various forms of assistance. Still shooting for release on Wednesday as long as everything keeps moving in the right direction.

Feel free to shoot him an email, he is probably up to getting a few now that things have calmed down an bit.
