Congratulations Assistant Chief Chris Johns, OFE, OFC!: Assistant Chief Chris Johns was recently granted the Ohio Fire Chief (OFC) designated by the Ohio Fire Chief’s Association.  This designation seeks to provide independent verification and certification of the Fire Chiefs in the state.  Each applicant is measured against a predetermined set of standards and the applicants are subsequently reviewed by a panel of chief’s peers statewide. “The OFC credential seeks to affirm to government officials, agencies, and most importantly, the public that the chief serves that the person earning it is truly qualified to hold such position as determined by an independent body,” said Chief Steve Miller.  “It is one thing to believe you have what it takes to do the job. It is quite another to be able to demonstrate that your peers recognize that you are qualified.  This credential is the vehicle to do just that.” Please join us in congratulating Assistant Chief Chris Johns, OFE, OFC.
