Fire Chief Terry Anderson
As Fire Chief, I am honored to lead our firefighters/EMTs who proudly serve our community with a variety of services including, but not limited to, fire prevention and safety, fire suppression, rescue operations, basic life support and public education.
To better serve our growing community, our dedicated firefighters continually strive to enhance their skills through ongoing education and training. I want to thank our community for its continued support of our efforts and achievements. Under the leadership of Mayor Kohl, Deputy Fire Chief Charles Fraker, and myself, we will ensure our mission of providing for the safety and welfare of the public remains the Martinsville Fire Department’s top priority.
