"Our goal is to develop a long-term strategic method that addresses the critical challenges faced by emergency service organizations.  This venture is primarily focused on volunteer and combination agencies to drive the leadership of the fire service into the future."

-Chief Timothy S. Wall, VCOS chair

VISION: The VCOS International Strategic Initiative Online Network


To produce a comprehensive framework to assist communities and their fire and emergency service leaders to create and maintain dynamic organizations.


VISION is the result of the combined efforts of fire chiefs from across the U.S. and Canada addressing the needs of volunteer and combination emergency response agencies. Our efforts were focused on specific areas of organizational management that had been identified as presenting challenges to creating and sustaining viable emergency response programs. The information contained on the website will be continuously reviewed and updated as new ideas are brought forth from the leadership in emergency response. Learn more about VISION.

VCOS thanks our many corporate partners who helped make the summit possible.
