What People are Saying

“I was recruited through this program for my current position as the Fire Chief at Unified Fire Authority. Not only did WFCA provide a safe environment while I considered this opportunity, but they evaluated my compatibility for the new role, all without compromising my existing Fire Chief position. I would have never blindly applied for this position on my own, as it would have put my existing job and reputation at risk. Once I did decide to compete for the position, WFCA continued to provide me with counseling to further evaluate my fit. After accepting the role with Unified Fire Authority, WFCA assisted my past agency with their Fire Chief search. I truly believe this is the best method to select a Chief Officer and WFCA provides organizations the best chance in finding the type of person who will be successful, not just people with a good resume shopping for a new job.”
