A Message From the Chief

As the Chief of Lowell Fire Department I would like to thank the citizens of our great community for the continued support we receive. The fire service is an ever evolving organization and every day we are met with new challenges. I am dedicated to taking on those challenges and leading this department into the future while ensuring we remain efficient and continue to provide the highly reliable services to our community. We continue to invest in our community by conducting public education events at schools and with organizations. We provide emergency responses for any incidents including fire, motor vehicle accidents, medical emergencies and hazardous materials. It is my mission to ensure the members of our department have the best equipment, training and leadership to handle all of these incidents in a safe and effective manner. During my time with the Lowell Fire Department I have come to realize that we have great, professional, highly trained and caring members to serve our community. These members show their dedication daily through their response to incidents, public education and community events. It is their goal as well as mine to provide the highest level of service and compassion to our community. We will continue to operate daily with this goal in mind. Again, thank you for your support of our department, we look forward to seeing you at a community event soon.
