I have worked my way up by first making lieutenant and then I was promoted to captain. I already have some experience fulfilling these duties, so I know what the job entails.

I have excellent leadership skills and I have earned the respect and trust of everyone in the fire station. I know how to react during emergencies and I have the ability to make the right choices even during difficult and stressful situations.

In addition to my training and experience in the field and leading a team, I also have the ability to perform all of the management duties this position involves. These include evaluating the team along with being accountable for the actions of my squad.

I also have the ability and training needed to conduct safety-training exercises, evaluate existing programs, devise and implement new programs when needed and to perform any other administrative tasks this position requires. I hope that you will consider my application and all of my training and experience when you choose the person to fill this position.
