Background: The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has set ambitious goals for Saudi Aramco that mirror the wider political and economic reforms being enacted. By 2030, Saudi Aramco intends to be “the world’s leading integrated energy and chemicals company […] facilitating the sustainable and diversified expansion of the Kingdom’s economy and enabling a globally competitive and vibrant Saudi energy sector.” For the Saudi Aramco Fire Protection Department (FrPD), this entails diversification of risk and a need to continue challenging its personnel and grow new leaders who can champion the company’s - and the kingdom’s – modernization process. Given Saudi Aramco’s company-wide commitment to workplace safety and fire prevention, the FrPD firefighters get little operational experience. Challenging the up-and-coming leaders within FrPD not being feasible, Saudi Aramco approached the IAFC to craft a solution.

Mission: To provide a best practice-based leadership experience in U.S. fire departments.
