OMFPOA Director Karin Roskam is very excited to welcome Mississauga’s new Fire Chief Tim Beckett!

Chief Beckett was formally the fire chief for the City of Kitchener.

He is a former President of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs, where he represented the chief officers of almost 462 fire departments across Ontario.

“My first year as a Director with the OMFPOA, I had the opportunity to work with Chief Beckett when he was the OAFC President.  He was always very open with us and was a great communicator.

We’re looking forward to ways Chief Beckett will help of us stay safer where we live, work, learn and play!” Karin Roskam, Training Officer, Mississauga Fire.
