Alexandria Fire Chief Jeff Karrow was recently awarded a scholarship to attend an international leadership symposium for volunteer fire chiefs.


It will take place November 10-15 in Clearwater Beach, Florida.

The Alexandria City Council approved the opportunity, which will not cost the city or taxpayers any money.

Only two full-ride scholarships were awarded across the nation. The cost for the symposium, including hotel and airfare, would have been $1,950.
