The Alaska Fire Chiefs Association (AFCA) was first organized in October of 1969 by the Fire Chiefs in attendance at the ASFA Conference held in Petersburg, Alaska. By unanimous decision Chief E.A. "Doc" Holiday was asked to preside over the meeting; it was subsequently decided during the meeting that Chief Holiday would act as Chairman through the organizational process of the Association.
The purpose of the organization as stated by the founding Chiefs was to provide an organization where "Chiefs throughout the State would have an opportunity to sit at a type of roundtable and discuss their problems, therefor assisting each other in the many varied situations a Chief is encountered with Support of legislation for, and the betterment of the fires service."
In addition it was noted that a "State Chiefs Association would have a direct tie with the Western Fire Chiefs Association our division to the International Association of Fire Chiefs."
The purpose of AFCA today is consistent with the direction established by the founding Chiefs 50-years ago.
