The Daily Dispatch is available in both a full and lite version. The full version of the Daily Dispatch contains a comprehensive schedule of national news, state news, job listings, equipment listings, announcements and events as well as featured columns. The lite version is an abbreviated style of the Daily Dispatch containing the top three news items for state and national news. Columns will be included but classifieds will be limited to featured listings. The idea of the lite version of the Daily Dispatch is to provide readers with a tool to more quickly view priority items. You may subscribe to more than one state Daily Dispatch newsletter.

The Daily Dispatch features the following advertising opportunities:

With more than 120 years of working with fire service leaders, Western Fire Chiefs Association knows what great leadership looks like. We also know that the majority of fire chiefs aren’t actively seeking new employment opportunities: the risk is simply too high to be 1 of 100 applicants that all look good on paper.

Our confidential recruitment takes place before the agency’s public hiring process, resulting in a safe environment for candidates to seriously consider an opportunity.
