 (IFSTA) to sponsor senior fire officer fellowships to
the Harvard University Senior Executives in State and Local Government Program.

This program lasts for three weeks in
the summer on Harvard University’s Cambridge Mass. campus. It aims to ensure public
officials are well-equipped to be effective public leaders. In- and
out-of-classroom learning experiences help further this goal.

Congratulations to the 2013 awardees!
