Chief Gary Ludwig of Champaign Installed as IAFC President

Chief Gary Ludwig, Champaign (Illinois) Fire Department, was installed Thursday, August 8, as IAFC President and Chairman of the Board.

Chief Ludwig will lead the association’s 18-member board of directors. He will serve as the association’s primary spokesman on national and international issues, testify on behalf of the organization at Congressional hearings and serve as the association’s representative dignitary. His term officially began Saturday, August 10.

During his inaugural address at Fire-Rescue International (FRI) in Atlanta, Georgia, Chief Ludwig said, “Raising my hand and swearing an oath was not a ceremonial high five. I assure you I am not going to warm a seat or just occupy a title.  I plan on making a difference. I want to leave it better than I found it.”

Also installed as 2019-2020 IAFC officers were Chief Richard Carrizzo, Southern Platte (Missouri) Fire Protection District as second vice president, and Chief Steven Locke, Burlington (Vermont) Fire Department as treasurer.   2018-2019 President Chief Dan Eggleston, Albemarle County (Virginia) Department of Fire Rescue, will continue to serve on the IAFC executive committee as immediate past president.
