Chief John Evans took the helm of the department in July 2005, and has been with the department since 1982. He worked his way through the ranks of Firefighter, Senior Firefighter, Captain, Fire Marshal, Battalion Chief and Assistant Chief.
"I am excited about the challenges and possibilities that we have as a department," says Evans. "There is not a better group of men and women to work with, than the Firefighters of this city."

reliable professionals; committed to excellence, exceeding the needs and expectations of those we
