A Message from our Chief

Thank you for visiting the fire department webpage.  On behalf of the entire Minerva Fire Department I would like to extend our deep appreciation to the community for its continued support. Please take the opportunity to look through our various pages to learn more about what we do and see the many faces of the organization.

I am extremely proud of the pride and professionalism of each of our Volunteers. Their unselfish sacrifice, dedication, and loyalty are unmatched. I also recognize the stress that this causes on their families and I am grateful for their support in allowing each one of our firefighters to train and to respond to emergencies to help someone in their time of need.

It is my honor and I am truly thankful to serve as your Fire Chief. I consider myself fortunate to work with a caring, well-trained, and enthusiastic group of men and women who have made a commitment to serve their community. We are here day or night, under all conditions to serve you.
