IAFC Issues Guide on Dealing with Economic Challenges

The current economic challenges are taking a toll on everyone and nearly every organization, including every fire/EMS department. Even the most optimistic financial forecasts warn that the economy could remain weak for years to come.

In response to this situation, International Association of Fire Chiefs President Chief Larry Grorud has formed a task force to provide guidance and assistance on how best to deal with this issue head-on. The IAFC Economic Challenge Task recently released "Weathering the Economic Storm: Fiscal Challenges in Fire and Emergency Medical Services" (pdf), a guide to help IAFC members embrace the tough decisions they face with resolve.

This guide is part of an ongoing effort to make certain IAFC members have the tools needed to survive and thrive through the tough financial challenges ahead, IAFC officials said. For more information, visit http://www.iafc.org/economy.
