Ron Fowler, Monroe’s fire chief and a public safety officer for more than three decades, was installed recently as president of the N.C. Association of Fire Chiefs.

The fire chiefs’ organization, founded in 1932, serves the needs of volunteer and career fire chiefs across the state. Fowler was a board member of the group for five years before becoming president.

Fowler joined the Monroe Public Safety Department in 1983 and rose through the ranks. When the fire and police departments were separated in 1999, Fowler was named chief of the fire department. He has an associate’s degree from CPCC and a bachelors in fire safety engineering technology from UNC Charlotte.

Fowler is past president of the Piedmont North Carolina Firefighters Association and is a board member with the Southeastern Association of Fire Chiefs.
