Current Chief Tim Thomas as given over a decade of hard and disciplined work to the Fire Department, Administration, Community, and local partners.  We are forever grateful for the time he has spent improving, advocating, and growing the Fire Department.


Chief Berter begins his tenure as a Full-Time Chief on February 5th and will hit the ground running.  His experience at Fairfield City, West Chester Township, and Fairfield Township fire, as well as his residency and lifelong committment and home within Fairfield Township makes Chief Berter well prepared to carry on the great work established by Chief Thomas.
