Chief's Corner


As your Fire Chief, I want to use this opportunity to highlight the amazing things you all are doing within the department. With the many challenges you continue to face as we navigate our way through COVID-19, I remain in awe of the commitment and dedication you continue to make to the residents of this city!

The Chief’s Corner is a platform designed especially for you! While I would typically like to meet and have an open dialogue in person, I would like to continue our conversations – virtually. It is my intention to continue this format even after resuming station visits in the near future.

As members of the fire department, you can submit any questions to me via email addressing any changes, challenges, concerns, ideas, policies, recommendations or if you just want to say hello! I want to hear from you!

So I encourage you to email me at [email protected]
