Application procedures have been announced for the 2011 Harvard Fire Executive Fellowship Program. The program is once again sponsored through a partnership between the IAFC, Fire Protection Publications/International Fire Service Training Association, the National Fire Protection Association and the U.S. Fire Administration.
