As the 2016 year comes to an end, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank Deputy Chief Randy Ricks for his 24 years as a Chief Officer and Fire Commissioner Mike Kohler. Mr. Ricks has been an Assistant Chief for 11 years, Deputy Chief for 1 year and Chief of the District for 12 years. Mr. Kohler has been a Fire Commissioner for 20 years as well as an active firefighter. Both men have put forth hard work and dedication in the Centerville Fire District as well as displaying professionalism, leadership, and high morale for those of lesser grade to follow.
Commissioner Kohler will relieve his position as Fire Commissioner and remain an active firefighter. At which time, Deputy Chief Ricks will relieve his position as Deputy Chief and will assume the duties as a Fire Commissioner.
Newly elected and/or re-elected personnel will assume their duties come the first of the year. Below are the 2017 Fire Commissioners, Chief Officers & Line Officers.
