Mr. Christopher Roark Sr.

My philosophy of leadership is one based on leading by example, including returning to school and working hard, both in school and on the job, to enhance my skills. As a front line company officer, I take my responsibilities extremely seriously. I feel an effective leader should never ask someone to do something that they would not do or have not already done. As a leader, I take advantage of every opportunity to pass along to younger firefighters the lessons that I have learned during my career. This is crucial because these individuals will the fire service’s future leaders.
