From the Chief

Dr. Albert Schweitzer once said “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.”

For everyone at South Metro, our calling is taking care of our citizens like they were members of our own family and caring for the most vulnerable in our community and society.

This is a noble calling. We provide for the safety, health and wellness of our communities we serve – and we ensure everyone in our SMFR family has the necessary resources to safely and effectively perform their job duties.

Some of our greatest strengths are deeply rooted in tradition: service before self; personal sacrifice in the face of danger; and the unconditional love of a caregiver for the least privileged and most vulnerable in our community. For many of us, such a noble profession is our calling.

I am proud to be the Fire Chief at South Metro Fire Rescue and my commitment to the men and women who selflessly serve our community is to preserve our history and take care of our members in the same spirit that our men and women care for our citizens. We are family here – brothers and sisters united to serve.
