As Fire Chief of the City of Reedley Fire Department, I have the privilege and opportunity to serve in a great community with the finest men and women in the world. The responsibilities of the Fire Department are constantly changing and have grown from just, "fighting fires". Today, we deliver and serve in an "all risk" capacity and are responding to a much broader range of emergency response and prevention services than ever before.
While we work and carry out our duties to provide for a safe and healthy community, I am constantly reminded of how fragile life is. As a result of the horrific and tragic events on September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington DC, we all have once again been reminded that the business of protecting life and property has a very high price. Our members' work day and night in harm's way devoted to making each and every one of you safe.
The men and women, your friends and neighbors, serving as members of the Reedley Fire Department do so with courage, energy, and professionalism. I can firmly state that your Fire Department is prepared to meet the challenges of the future. I am proud to serve as your Fire Chief and I thank you for taking the time to become familiar with us.
