The International Association of Fire Chiefs (www.iafc.org) announced that Benjamin M. Barksdale, Deputy Fire Chief of the Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department, has been accepted into the 2014 session of the Fire Service Executive Development Institute (FSEDI).
Now in its second year, the FSEDI is a year-long leadership-development program developed by the IAFC to provide new and aspiring chiefs with the tools they need to advance and have successful and productive careers. Barksdale has been awarded a scholarship which will cover expenses associated with travel for three sessions to be held in Northern Virginia during the coming year.
“Ben Barksdale has demonstrated leadership qualities necessary to move the fire service forward today and into the future,” said Chief Bill Metcalf, IAFC president and chairman of the board. “The IAFC is proud to help enhance his leadership abilities and provide him the tools he need for a successful career as a fire service leader through the Fire Service Executive Development Institute.”
