Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Every now and then the politicians get it right! The city of Syracuse New York was smart enough to choose Mark McLees, as their new chief. Mark has been with Syracuse now for 24 years and is currently one of their district chiefs. Mark contributes every year as a regular at FDIC and has been a long-standing friend of Fire Engineering and the fire service training community in general. We know Mark will make a tremendous chief because he has the right skills at every level of our profession and we wish him all the success in the world. Congratulations to the city of Syracuse, our good friend Mark and all the men and women of that proud and honorable department. Below are some links to the local stories about Mark's selection:
