Right now Cabin John Fire Chief Jim Seavey, Sr. and Cabin John Battalion Chief Corrinne Piccardi are in Clearwater, FL soaking up some warm weather while also soaking up much needed learning opportunities. The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) has a division known as VCOS, or the Volunteer and Combination Officers Section. VCOS is currently holding their annual symposium, dubbed “Symposium in the Sun” offering volunteer and combination department fire chiefs educational sessions, networking opportunities, and a host of other events including a memorial stair climb and 5K. While at the event, BC Corinne Piccardi was awarded a scholarship, which covers the cost of attending the event. Chief Piccardi has only been in her role for a brief time, but has taken it upon herself to travel away from family to attend events such as this and other symposiums and conferences across the United States. The department would like to congratulate Chief Piccardi on her award! CJPVFD is excited for her and the Fire Chief to bring back some valuable knowledge and resources to the department.
