Reno, Nev. August 24, 2021 – Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue Deputy Fire Chief Dale Way has successful completed the process that earned him the professional designation of “Chief Fire Officer” (CFO).

Chief Way has more than 25 years of experience in the Nevada fire service and has worked for Clark County, Las Vegas, and North Las Vegas Fire Departments prior to beginning his service with the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District in February 2020. Chief Way graduated from the National Labor College with a degree in Business Administration and graduated from the College of Southern Nevada with degrees in Fire Science Technology and Fire Science Management.
