Godwin completes executive program
Captain Shawn Godwin of the Garner Fire Department recently completed the National Fire Academy Executive Officer Program.
The program is an initiative designed to provide senior officers with a broad perspective on various facets of fire and emergency services administration. The curriculum and research examine how senior authority figures can exercise leadership when dealing with difficult adaptive problems. The program takes about four years to complete and is recognized by the entire U.S. Fire Service.
Godwin is the first member of the Garner Fire Department to complete the program.
