The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) announced that Pasadena Deputy Fire Chief, Tim Sell, has been accepted into the 2024 Fire Service Executive Development Institute (FSEDI).
By News Desk
Deputy Fire Chief Sell competed with fire officers from across the United States and Canada to become a member of the 2024 cohort program. Each year, only 20 students are accepted out of the hundreds that apply.
Tim is a 17-year veteran of the fire service. He started his career as a firefighter in Pasadena in 2007, was promoted to Fire Captain in 2014, Battalion Chief in 2020, then Deputy Chief in 2021. Tim earned a BS in Organizational Leadership from Biola University. He is married to Jenelle and has two boys, Logan and Wyatt.
The Fire Service Executive Development Institute is a year-long leadership-development program. It was created and implemented by the IAFC to provide new and aspiring chiefs with the tools they need. The members of the cohort will meet four times in the coming year. One of the meetings will take place at the Fire Rescue International conference in Dallas, Texas. Between onsite sessions the cohort group will communicate using an online community. They will meet for their first session at the National Conference Center, Leesburg, VA. during the week of February 3-9, 2024.
This is the twelfth year that the Motorola Solutions Foundation has provided the International Association of Fire Chiefs with a grant to fund the program.
