The Flanders Fire Department is run in two different pieces, based on Operations and Administration.
Operations are run by the Line Officers. The Line Officers consist of the Chief, Deputy Chief, First Assistant Chief, Second Assistant Chief, Captains, and Lieutenants. These officers work using the chain of command, starting with the Chief, to complete tasks at the scene of an emergency.
The Second piece is the Executive Board which conducts formal business and insures that organizational tasks are completed. This is done by members of the department who act as the President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary, and Treasurer. Business is primarily conducted during the monthly meetings which are held at the Flanders Fire Department on the second Tuesday of each month.
