On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Alabama Association of Fire Chiefs, I welcome you to our website and hope you find this site a useful tool to stay informed about our mission.
I want to personally thank each member for your support of the AAFC and the recognize the dedication and hard work you put forth. Our members, the quality of our departments, and the leadership displayed is unmatched. The Alabama fire service provides leadership at the local, state and national level and our membership is always ready to be on the frontline, moving the fire service forward. I am honored to represent the AAFC membership and will continually strive to meet your expectations and accomplish our mission.
If you are not currently a member, I ask and encourage you to join and support our mission. It is our belief that for us to represent the fire service in Alabama we need diversity that is representative of our great state. The opportunity for education and networking across our state are two of the greatest benefits that come with membership. Membership discounts are available for those from volunteer and predominantly volunteer combination departments.
I look forward to the upcoming year and plan to continue the growth that our previous leadership has provided. We have faced so many new unknowns in the previous year and the expectation is that there will be new and difficult challenges ahead. I know that our membership will rise to meet the challenges of politics, cultural change, retention and recruitment of members, and provide physical and emotional health for our firefighters. We will meet the challenges of the new year working together, expanding our membership, and supporting the complex role of Fire Chief.
It is an honor to be your President and ask that you call on me or the AAFC if we can assist you in anyway.
Chief Tim Love
President AAFC 2020 - 2021
