Dear Mr. McBride,

Upon discovering that you were currently hiring a Fire Chief, I hastened to submit my resume for your review. As a firefighter with 13 years of experience, as well as a station captain, I have a firm grasp on both the technical and administrative tasks involved in managing a fire department.

My skill in managing teams and programs, maintaining equipment and vehicles and attention to detail have made a huge contribution towards my success in this field. I have much experience when it comes to handling emergency situations. I can remain calm, quickly analyze the situation and implement a plan, manpower and resources to suit the immediate needs. I am passionate about improving the knowledge of emergency and fire safety procedures and practices to protect our communities, and have, as a result, visited many schools to give informative talks.

I have outlined some of my achievements in my career below:

Received Career Officer of the Year award for two consecutive years

Raised $50, 000 in funds for treatment of injured firefighters to return to work quickly and safely

Introduced the use of iPads that give access to real-time information about the structures they approach and any potentially hazardous material.

I am confident that I am the ideal candidate for this position. I have attached my resume which contains more information regarding my qualifications and experience. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email should you require further clarification on anything. I will follow up with you next week. Thank you for your consideration.
