Palm Harbor fire chief honored

Palm Harbor's fire Chief James Angle was named the 2010 Florida Fire Chief of the Year, chosen out of 14 nominees.

His career in fire service began 35 years ago in Pennsylvania.

For the past 13 years, he has served as fire chief for Palm Harbor. He served as the chairman of the FFCA Health and Safety Committee, has led an active role on the Legislative committee and just recently finished eight years on the State Firefighters Standards and Training Council, his last year as chairman.

Angle is also active in the Florida Association of Special Fire Districts, working on multiple levels to improve firefighter safety and education for both volunteer and career firefighters throughout the state. In addition, he is an active member of local committees such as the Pinellas County Fire Chief's Association, the Palm Harbor Chamber and the Kiwanis Club of Palm Harbor.

Although Palm Harbor Fire Rescue is not the largest department in Pinellas County, Angle is sought out by other agencies to share and represent his leadership qualities and influence on firefighting policies and community affairs.

Angle has earned the executive fire officer and chief fire officer designation, has written and co-authored two texts published for the fire service at the national level and written numerous articles.

His work to improve the significance of firefighters in the minds of state legislators was solidified last year when the state adopted legislation creating the Florida firefighter's memorial flag, one of the first in the nation.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry announced crowd of 24,325 at Raymond James Stadium.
