NFPA's Ray Bizal and incoming Cal Chiefs president Mike DuRee (Long Beach)


Ray Bizal, NFPA SW Regional Director, attended the 2016 California Fire Chiefs Association Annual Conference October 26-28 in Sacramento.  There were plenty of leadership presentations and discussions about fire-based EMS.  NFPA provided an update, where Ray outlined NFPA's new mission and strategies around Big Data, Enforcer and First Responder engagement.  Long Beach Fire Chief Mike DuRee was sworn in as President.  Tracy Hansen, Cosumnes Fire, received the honor of Fire Chief of the Year.


I was at a State Fire Council Fire Prevention Committee meeting for the adoption of the 2015 NFPA 1, Fire Code, last week.  The group took a break and went to the Capitol where Governor Ige signed the 2016 proclamation for Fire Prevention Week.  The State Fire Council, comprised of the four county fire chiefs, was also in attendance, as were several other island chiefs and the State Forester.  What a great experience to see Fire Prevention Week officially recognized on the most remote islands in the world.
