Fire Service Mentoring Program

The FFCA is offering members an opportunity to select a fire service mentor for a variety of individual/professional needs.  This is a component of the strategic plan of the FFCA and the Executive Fire Officer Section has agreed to lead this effort on the Association’s behalf.   FFCA members will find a short biography on each of the Florida fire professionals serving in the mentoring capacity with achievements and areas of specialties to assist members in selecting a mentor.  This program is designed to allow a consistent approach throughout the State and build a strong and dependable network for all to utilize.  This is just one more example of the FFCA meeting the needs and requests of the membership.
