Brita Horn, Never Give Up Consulting Chief Problem Solver and the Fire Chief of Rock Creek Volunteer Fire Department, has been elected Vice President of Colorado State Fire Chiefs (CSFC). She is the first female Fire Chief in the history of the organization (since 1968) to be elected to this position. The CSFC serves to build strategic alliances, mentor aspiring leaders, and advance the safety of all Colorado communities by supporting the professional development of the fire and emergency services industry through training and continuing education.
Before she was elected Vice President, Brita served as Treasurer for the CSFC since 2018. While acknowledging her election to this position, Brita said she was grateful for the opportunity to proudly represent the volunteer firefighters across the state of Colorado.
In their reaction, her fellow fire chiefs said she works diligently and faithfully to represent volunteer fire departments across the state of Colorado and will be an asset for the CSFC. Eager to continue her service, Brita looks forward to working with the rest of the executive board to offer a helping hand to fellow Coloradoans and first responders.
“It is an unbelievable honor to be elected by my fire chief peers to serve as the VP of Colorado Fire Chiefs. I am blessed to represent all fire departments and it is a special privilege to be able to be the voice of our underserved volunteer fire departments in Colorado”, said the VP.
Her previous engagements have been in response to the call for community service after the September 11, 2001 attacks. She participated in the creation of the Rock Creek Volunteer Fire Department to fill a need in their community, McCoy, CO, and Eagle County and has served that community for the past 19 years. Her service and dedication have impacted many, both inside and outside of Colorado. She has been featured in The New Republic, The Boston Globe, Denver Post, Colorado Politics, and other publications. Through her long experience and training in responding to 911 emergencies and through her consulting service, she has helped clients looking to conquer chaos and crisis in their own lives. She offers a blueprint to master routine strategies to help people find their CALM. Among the services she offers to her clients include assistance with the needs for content curation and maintaining a positive image for organizations, creating and shaping brand voice and public perception on social media and traditional media, to increase awareness of the work and goal of the organization, among other services.
“My clients are seeking guidance to grasp a level of CALM in their lives as they navigate their future, by having a routine that will become second-nature when a crisis arises. They will get the tools to enable them to think clearly, and laser-focus on how to make the chaotic situation better, personally or professionally. This mind-set is how every trained firefighter operates while responding to 911 emergency calls,” said Brita.
