My name is Matt Clark and I currently serve as the Division Chief of Operations for the Williston Fire Department, Williston North Dakota. Our department is a 4 station combination department with 106 total members. We are located in the heart of the Bakken oil patch in northwest North Dakota. I began in the fire service in 2005 and have worked as both a civilian firefighter and military firefighter for the U.S. Air force. I have been fortunate throughout my career to have worked around the world in the fire service. Throughout my time my goal has always been to improve the fire service and help my fellow firefighters out anyway I can. I ask for your support and to be selected for one of the open At-Large Director positions for the Safety, Health and Survival section of the IAFC. I am committed to bringing my operational experience to the table, along with my educational experience. I currently hold a Master’s in Public Administration and am half way complete with a second Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health.
