Chiefs' Roundtable Event Recap

We had a remarkable gathering at the Chiefs' Roundtable in Eudora on March 19, 2024. A heartfelt thank you to Chief Andresevits and the entire team, along with the local community, for their warm hospitality. Approximately 40 attendees engaged in vibrant discussions on pressing issues affecting our industry.

Event Highlights: The event commenced with a special Meet & Greet, setting the stage for an evening of networking. This was a great opportunity to forge new connections and strengthen existing ones, enhancing the resilience of our fire service community. The discussions were both meaningful and collaborative, aimed at reinforcing a united front in Kansas fire leadership. Everyones participation truly enriched the experience.

Discussion Focus: A key topic addressed was the proposed OSHA rule changes. Special thanks to Chief Flory from Shawnee Heights Fire District for sharing a video by NVFC to help understand the implications of these changes. We encourage everyone to review this material, as it is significant to our ongoing efforts.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to enhancing fire service leadership.

KSAFC 2023 Conference Review

I am delighted to reflect on the tremendous success of our recent conference hosted by the Kansas State Association of Fire Chiefs. The event was a resounding triumph, thanks in no small part to the extraordinary efforts of our dedicated team and the invaluable support of our partners.

First and foremost, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the hardworking men and women of the Manhattan Fire Ddepartment for their unwavering commitment and tireless efforts in making this conference a truly exceptional experience. Their dedication to excellence was evident in every aspect, from the meticulously planned educational sessions to the seamless coordination of networking opportunities.

The educational sessions were a highlight, providing valuable insights and fostering an environment of continuous learning. Attendees had the chance to engage with cutting-edge topics, exchange knowledge, and enhance their professional skills. It was an experience that undoubtedly left a lasting impact on all who participated.

I must also express our sincere appreciation to the vendors and sponsors who played a crucial role in the success of the conference. Their support not only contributed to the overall excellence of the event but also showcased a shared commitment to the growth and advancement of our association.

For those who were unable to attend, I assure you, you missed out on an unparalleled opportunity for networking, education, and camaraderie. The connections made and knowledge gained were invaluable, and we look forward to extending these opportunities in the future.

In closing, let me reiterate my gratitude to everyone involved in making this conference a triumph. Your dedication to our association and the fire service community at large is truly commendable. As we continue to face challenges together, let this event serve as a testament to the strength and unity of our association.

Chad Russell - KSAFC President
