Mercer Island fire chief accepted into national training program

Mercer Island Fire Chief Chris Tubbs was recently accepted into the Executive Leadership Program at the Naval Post Graduate School's Center for Homeland Defense and Security.

The extremely competitive nine-month program requires a week of onsite attendance each quarter, with costs covered by the Department of Homeland Security.

The program works to strengthen overall national security by providing hand-picked executive level graduates with a better understanding of current and future homeland security issues, public policy debates and terrorist threats. The information learned will be brought back and shared with the local community.
