 Al Yancey Endorsed for IAFC Board of Directors - Volunteer & Combination Officer Section


The Illinois Fire Chiefs Association Executive Board is pleased to endorse Chief Al Yancey, Minooka Fire Protection District, for the Board of Directors of the International Association of Fire Chiefs – Volunteer and Combination Officer Section.  Chief Yancey has nearly 29 years of service working for and in volunteer and combination departments.  He is a graduate of the Executive Fire Officer Program and holds a bachelors degree in Fire Service Management from Southern Illinois University – Carbondale.


Chief Yancey has served as the Chairman of the IFCA’s own Volunteer and Combination Committee (VCOC) since it was created by the Association in 2005 and is an active member of the IFCA.  As Chairman of VCOC, Chief Yancey has assembled a great team of committee members who continue to guide the VCOC on a mission of improving leadership quality and opportunities for volunteer and combination departments across Illinois.  One example is that over the past four years the VCOC has been administering a $1.3 million SAFER Grant that has helped many volunteer departments across Illinois to recruit and retain volunteers.  VCOC is one of the most active committees in the IFCA.


The IFCA believes Chief Yancey is a right choice for the IAFC-VCOS Board.  His experience and commitment to the volunteer and combination fire service in Illinois, along with his success in guiding and developing the IFCA-VCOC, proves he will be a great asset to the IAFC-VCOS Board.  He will bring the experience and best practices from Illinois to the national level.    

The 2017 VCOS election will be run exclusively online in conjunction with the IAFC election. Voting goes from April 27 to June 8.
