"The problem was that the Santa Clara County Fire Department (SCCFD) will face significant turnover in the chief officer ranks in the next 5 years due to anticipated retirements, and no specific plan exists to prepare personnel to enter the chief officer ranks. The purpose of this research was to identify ways in which the SCCFD could prepare future chiefs to fill those key leadership vacancies. Descriptive research, including a literature review and survey, was used to answer research questions. The results showed the importance of and need for a formal career development plan for chief officers. Recommendations were made to assist the SCCFD in creating a formal career development plan."
