2015 Presidents Award To Gov. Mike Pence
As the immediate past president of the Indiana Fire Chiefs Association, I was honored to be able to present the 2015 Presidents award to Gov. Mike Pence. The Govenor was chosen for his leadership and support for the the fire academy bill which he signed into law during the 2015 Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis. Regardless of your position in politics, this was a good thing for our great state. This law received overwhelming support from both republicans and democrats and made it thru the Indiana House and Senate without a single no vote. This was a really big deal for the fire service in the State of Indiana!!!
