Message from the Chief
It is truly a pleasure to serve our community as the Fire Chief / Administrator of the Darien-Woodridge Fire District. I am fortunate to have been able to participate in the fire service since 1976 and have thoroughly loved every day. To continue to serve you is an honor.
Over the years, we have seen drastic change in the Fire Service; from the inception of Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus, to requirements placed upon our members for training in a variety of disciplines. While we hold onto necessary traditions of the past, we need to embrace change as we move into the future. Learning from what we have done, and where we have been, is as important as having the foresight to see where we need to go. We lean on history, while keeping our vision focused into the future.
I welcome everyone to our new website. It will provide you with a foundation describing your Fire District, and also an abundance of information necessary in providing you with a clear picture of the organization of the Fire District. We also look forward to inviting you to visit us on Facebook in the near future.
My goals are to provide you with the best service possible, while also providing our Officers and Firefighters the tools necessary to do their jobs, and to make their ”working environment” as safe as I can so they can make it home to their families at the end of their tour of duty.
I welcome you all to stop by “your firehouse” and visit with the crews that are here to protect you.
