(BLOOMINGTON) - The Bloomington Fire Department and the Board of Public Safety promoted Bloomington firefighter Tania Daffron as the new Battalion Chief of Training.

Daffron is the first female firefighter to hold the rank of chief officer in the department's 115-year existence.

Chief Daffron, with more than 13 years of service with the department, is one of four women on the force.

Daffron's duties will include ensuring that firefighters are updated on department operations, providing additional training, planning a trench rescue class in September, obtaining resources for the department, event planning, coordinating documentation for firefighters and attending medical control board meetings with township representatives, according to the release.

"I would like to thank the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and the Board of Public Safety for considering my recommendation to appoint Tania Daffron to Battalion Chief of Training and making it a reality," Fire Chief Todd Easton said in the release. "Chief Daffron's knowledge, experience and certifications obtained during her career will provide a positive and progressive platform within our organization through her leadership in the Training Division."

Daffron says she is excited taking this next step in her career.

"I am humbled and proud," Daffron said in the release. "I enjoy learning. If you are not learning, you are stagnating. You learn something every day whether you want to or not, and this position will allow me to learn more about something I love doing."
