Letter from the Chief


On behalf of the Ashland Fire Department I’d like to welcome you to our webpage. The mission of the Ashland Fire Department is to enhance the quality of life in our community by dedicating our effort to the safety, health, and welfare of the public we serve. We take pride in our mission and the community we serve, and strive to continually improve the quality of life for the citizens by providing a safe and secure environment. Serving our community for over 125 years, the Ashland Fire Department continues its tradition of excellence by promoting public safety through fire prevention, education, and suppression while maintaining the public’s trust by responding to the needs and concerns of our community with commitment, integrity, and honor.

We are pleased to showcase our department through this website. Please check out the many features and feel free to contact us with your comments, concerns and/or suggestions.  By working together we can ensure that the needs and concerns of our community are being met both today and in the future. I hope you find our site informative and valuable and encourage you to visit often to find information that is helpful.

These are exciting times for our firefighters and community. I wish to thank those firefighters that came before us. It is on the shoulders of your dedication and sacrifice that we stand as tall and proud as we do today. I would like to express my appreciation to the Mayor, Commissioners; elected officials, City Manager, City staff, and our community for the support you have shown the Ashland Fire Department over the years. I also want to say how proud I am of each member of the fire department, what a privilege it is to serve this community as their Fire Chief.

Again, welcome to the Ashland Fire Department website.
