Alan Brunacini, the former chief of the Phoenix Fire Department and a legend in the fire service, passed away the other day.
Chief Brunacini, who had a down-to-earth demeanor and a love for Hawaiian shirts, was a major innovator in the fire service.
The Brunacini insight and touch can be seen in this interview.
I had the chance to work with him many times over the years. An extraordinary leader.
Rest in peace.
