A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear members of NVIAAI,
I would like to thank Jeff Lomprey and the members of the NVIAAI for giving me the opportunity to serve as Chapter President. For the past 13 years I have been with the Sparks Fire Prevention Bureau. In 2012 I was promoted to Assistant Fire Marshal. During this time I have meet many wonderful and talented individuals in the fire service. As a board we have strived to provide quality training to our members. I will continue to make this my priority. Last year during the IAAI meeting in Las Vegas, we were able to reinstate the Western Chapter Coalition. As some of our older members may realize this be a great opportunity to train with other chapters. You as a member will be able to get class discounts and sponsorships. You will be able to find these opportunities on our website. Nevada has some unique challenges when it comes to training. I hope to meet these challenges and provide you with training that helps you further you career and partnership with IAAI. I encourage you to visit and use the NVIAAI website.
I would like to welcome two new Board Members Mike Cardinal as Region I Director. Mike is the Administrator Risk Management and Safety for Southwest Gas. And Fire Marshal Josh Carson of Elko City as our Region II Director. Their experience well be appreciated.
In closing I want to extend to you an invitation to the monthly board meeting. We meet the first Wednesday of every month. Please cheek the website for time and locations. I encourage you to attend; we welcome your opinion.
Assistant Fire Marshal
Sparks Fire Department
