staff members from the National Park Service Branch of Wildland Fire were
recently awarded the prestigious Paul
Gleason Lead by Example Award
for 2013. The intent
of this award is to recognize individuals or groups who exhibit Gleason's
professional spirit and who exemplify the wildland fire leadership values of
duty, respect, and integrity.

Chad Fisher, Wildland Fire Safety Program manager, and Jim Shultz, Wildland Fire Training Program manager, each received the award. Only three individuals and one group from across the wildland fire service were chosen to receive this national award for 2013.

Acting National Park Service Wildland Fire Branch Chief, Mark Koontz, stated, “To have not just one, but two employees, honored with this interagency award, really highlights the caliber of work and leadership by NPS Wildland Fire Management staff. Chad and Jim are outstanding
representatives in their respective fields.”
