On Friday, Greenwich Selectmen honored Deputy Chief of Training Larry Roberts for completing the National Fire Academy’s four year Executive Fire Officers Program.

First Selectman Tesei read aloud a letter from Greenwich Fire Chief Siecienski that described the demanding program that consumed months of research, study and  personal sacrifice to complete. The program centers on research, coursework, and executive analysis of topics such as leadership, strategic management of change, community risk reduction, and fire services emergency operations.

According to Chief Siecienski, only a fraction of the nation’s top one percent of fire officers have completed this program, and Chief Roberts is the first active fire department member to achieve this status.

“As a graduate of the program in 2001, I can personally appreciate the effort that Chief Roberts has dedicated to this milestone in his career,” Chief Siecienski wrote in his letter to the Selectmen.
