Fire Chief's Message

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I lead the men and women of the South Sioux City Fire Department (SSCFD). It is the goal of the Department to provide the highest level of service to each and every one of our citizens and surrounding communities. It is the diversity of our communities, along with the personnel of the Department that make this Department a leader in the fire service. We offer fire services with updated fire equipment, apparatus and superior training of our personnel. We deliver high quality Paramedic Services to our citizens and contracted area communities which need the Advanced Life Support (ALS) quality service.


As Fire Chief, I will continue to embody the core values:

Prepared for Duty

Serving with Integrity

Responding with Compassion

Committed to Professional Excellence

With a collaborative culture that has been built, an organization dedicated to superior service and excellence in all that we do. I am committed to our members, fostering our partnership with labor, and collaborating with allied agencies, local businesses, and our schools which ultimately benefit all of our citizens.


The crucial initiatives that we have identified and strive to address are:

  • Building upon the collaborative relationships between labor, management and our stakeholders in challenging times.
  • Development of a plan which allows for the timely improvement and replacement of capital assets and infrastructure as outline in the 5-year Strategic Plan.
  • Enhanced community outreach efforts that prepare citizens to deal with common emergencies; as well as, disasters.
  • Ensure a well-trained, respectful and [professional] workforce with a high degree of competency.
  • Maintaining a state of operational readiness that ensures adequate staffing and equipment to meet the needs of our communities.


I appreciate this incredible opportunity to serve a great community. It is a great honor to lead the men and women of the South Sioux City Fire Department as their Fire Chief.
