It has been 8 weeks since we took on the battle to deal with Covid-19 in Idaho. It has forced many chiefs to assume new and additional roles in our communities, it has forced chiefs to think out of the box and it has shown to everyone the leaders that  Fire Chiefs really are.

Never in my dreams would I have thought of doing or seeing the things that have gone on the past 8 weeks, but it has made me a stronger leader, father and husband. As we face the days, months and years ahead we will once again be challenged to lead our communities, organizations and teams.

Without a doubt there will be operational, budget and community challenges ahead, but with hope and diligence we will prevail. It will take our entire Association to have great communication with one another, but we will be stronger in the end.

The IFCA Board of Directors are committed to helping those in the Association get through these tough times. There will be funding/recovery opportunities for departments and districts in the weeks and months to come, so please watch your emails for those communications from the board.

Stay strong, be positive and this too shall pass.

Travis Myklebust, President
Idaho Fire Chiefs Association
