“Basic Commissioner Training”
Instructors: Attorneys Mark Butler and Terry Hannigan

This course will provide basic fire commissioner training by examining the authority and responsibilities of fire district commissioners. Class participation with group discussion will be emphasized and illustration of fire district problems will engage all participants and make the material practical and meaningful. The course meets and exceeds the requirements of Town Law 176-e, is approved by the New York state comptroller, and satisfies fire commissioner training requirements for those required to complete training within 270 days of election or appointment. The program is designed for fire commissioners and fire district secretaries and treasurers, but fire chiefs are also encouraged to attend. It will be presented by two of the leading fire service attorneys in New York state with extensive experience representing fire districts and training fire district commissioners, treasurers, secretaries, and fire chiefs.
