The mission of the Ann Arbor Fire Department is “to efficiently and professionally protect the residents and visitors of the City of Ann Arbor from adverse effects of fires, sudden medical emergencies or exposure to dangerous conditions created by man or nature that may threaten their lives or property. We strive to do so using a wide variety of programs varying from prevention to response in a safe and courteous manner.“  The man leading this effort is Larry Collins, the Ann Arbor Fire Chief since late 2014.  Larry came to Ann Arbor after serving for five years as fire chief for Bevard County Fire-Rescue in Brevard County, FL.  Prior to that, Larry spent 30 years of service with the Dayton Fire Department, from which he retired as director and fire chief in 2008.  Please join us to hear one of  our own Rotarians, Larry Collins, talk about the state of the Ann Arbor fire department and the focus of the department for the future.
