Glenn Miyagishima Thanks COA for Support

Dear Chief Moore,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and the Chief Officers Association for your assistance with my research study. The survey concluded recently and I completed interviews this week. The experiences that were shared are valuable and the importance of stress through each lens will provide a rich analysis of my topic.  Recently, the Chief Officers Association supported me with my research study "stress in the fire service" and I look forward to sharing my research with you at the conclusion of my dissertation study.

Since my retirement, I have had the opportunity to reflect back on my 33 years with the Los Angeles Fire Department, and knowing that I was able to live and work in a dream profession. However, living the dream can sometimes engrain the stress and grief that a firefighter experiences and my hope is that my research study can help the fire service. I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the Chief Officers Association's support as I finish the last leg of my journey at USC, and to all the officers that took the time to complete my survey.

Best to all the COA members and thank you...

Respectfully yours,

Dr. Glenn Miyagishima, EdD.
