Elliott, who has more than 30 years of public service with state and local government, has served since 2012 as TFACA’s fire service program director where he planned, directed and coordinated the activities of state fire academy personnel.
During Elliott’s tenure, the number of classes and student contact hours increased to record levels. In 2018, over 14,000 students enrolled either in-person or online in TFACA’s courses and over 1,000 courses were conducted.
