The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Emergency Services Training Institute (ESTI) has named Chief Sean Fay as its Leadership Development/Fire Officer Program Training Manager. Chief Fay comes to TEEX after serving as the Bedford (TX) Fire Chief for 5 years.

The TEEX Leadership Development/Fire Officer Program serves first responders, from rookie to chief, as they grow in their careers. Consisting of courses such as Fire Officer I, II, III and IV, and the capstone program, Fire Service Chief Executive Officer (FSCEO), the Leadership program also coordinates the annual Leadership Development Symposium, where first responders join together to learn more on leadership, management, safety, and other topics relevant to the fire service.

“I am very excited to join the TEEX organization!  Having served in emergency services for 30 years, I am now looking forward to being part of the team that supports and empowers public safety leaders to be their best.  I believe in the stewardship of developing leaders, and I am really looking forward to being part of outstanding programs like the TEEX Leadership Development Symposium and FSCEO,” said Fay.
