In addition to the Fire Chief, the Administrative Assistant, the Volunteer Chaplain, and the Medical Director at the executive level, the department is divided into two main branches: Administration/Support and Operations. Viewing our organizational chart below you will see other positions within our department, but many of these are held as collateral duties to the full and part-time positions.
Administration & Support Branch – This Branch, led by the Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal, is responsible for management and supervision of the Fire Prevention, Training/Support, and the Emergency Management Divisions. Emergency Vehicle Technician and Facilities Maintenance are handled through the City and not included in the Fire Department’s Organizational Chart.
Operations Branch – This Branch, led by the Assistant Chief of Operations, is responsible for management and supervision of the Emergency Operations Shifts, and the Special Services Division with includes EMS, Special Operations and Communications.
Volunteers – Our volunteers make up about one third of our staffing. They are paid a very small stipend for their time and commitment. Their unselfish service for the protection and betterment of the community is a testament to their character and exemplifies some of the oldest traditions associated with fire departments as a volunteer service. Many of these volunteers spend their own time and money to obtain certifications and advanced training in order to provide our community with the best possible service in times of need. They are individuals who come from all walks of life and professions. We have ambulance medics, teachers, paid firefighters, business professionals, municipal employees, students, truck drivers, retirees, and self-employed individuals who make up our organization. Each bring their own special skills and talents, but all are dedicated to our purpose. These members also serve knowing that there is a given amount of risk to their own well-being in the performance of their duties, so it is important we give them our community support.
