Chief Lieb's Message
Welcome to the inaugural issue of Salt Lake City Fire Department's (SLC Fire) monthly, Community e-Newsletter. This digital format will replace the .pdf newsletter format we have been e-mailing.

This e-newsletter will continue to feature safety and fire prevention information, department and station updates, emergency management tips, upcoming events and community outreach information.

In addition, we have added a "spotlight" feature where you can learn more about our firefighters, medics and emergency management leaders who serve you in this community. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions as to how we can improve this monthly information piece, please let us know. We want to ensure that all we do helps you understand our role and objectives in your various neighborhoods.

Stay safe,
Chief Karl Lieb

Between February and April, several two-hour training workshops will be held at various schools to educate and train residents about how to manage in an emergency, until first responders and additional aid arrives.

This program, called "S.A.F.E.," stands for School’s Aiding Families in Emergencies. It was created by Salt Lake City in partnership with the American Red Cross and Salt Lake Valley School District to better prepare residents.

The SAFE Neighborhoods program trains volunteers from every neighborhood so they can operate quickly, safely and effectively in their own community shelter until additional help arrives.

Firefighter Spotlight: SLC Fire Executive Team

Leadership expert and author John C Maxwell said, "Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another." Nothing is more true in the fire service. The person to respond to a 9-1-1 call responds quickly and takes personal risks to help someone in need , not because of the title he or she holds, but rather because of the oath taken as a firefighter and first responder to prepare effectively, respond quickly and impact positively.

As such, the role of the Executive Team at Salt Lake City Fire is to create opportunities for all SLC Fire department members to perfect their skills and work as a team to provide exceptional care.

Under the direction of Chief Karl Lieb, the Executive Team is comprised of a deputy fire chief, an assistant chief over administration and an assistant chief over operations.  In our first e-newsletter, we want to introduce you to them. Pictured above, left to right, is Assistant Chief Clair Baldwin, Administration; Deputy Chief Robert, "Rusty" McMicken; SLC Fire Chief Karl Lieb, and Assistant Chief Karl Steadman, Operations.
