Lincoln Fire and Rescue Chief Mike DeSpain has promoted three new Battalion Chiefs to serve the citizens of Lincoln. This means that there will now be two Battalion Chiefs on duty every day. Robert Watton, Lloyd Mueller and Michael Smith have been named to the positions.
This benefits the community by dividing the city in to two districts for response which promotes a safer environment for firefighters responding on calls and helps increase accountability and training opportunities for the force.
A Helmet Presentation Ceremony will be held on Thursday, June 20th at 4:30 pm at the new Fire Station 15 at 6601 Pine Lake Road.
