The Dayton Volunteer Fire Department got a new Fire Chief, Adam Piserelle, in December and he is happy to be serving his community. Piserelle has been with the Dayton Volunteer Fire Department for is years and worked his way up through the positions of Captain and Treasurer and now holds the Chief position.
“I definitely want to focus on public safety. As the town is growing and we want to grow with it.
We want to provide a service for all of our community,” said Piserelle on his focus in the position.
Piserelle was also thankful for the new fire engine the department received from the city. It is one of two fire engines at the new station on Highway 321, which also includes a tanker, three brush trucks and a ladder truck. The second station also has a variety of necessary vehicles and supplies to meet the needs of fires.
Piserelle graduated from Dayton High School in 1996 and is married to his wife Crystal for 20 years. They have two boys, Logan and Lucas.
“I’ve always loved to volunteer and to help my community and that was the reason I pushed for this. Just like the rest of the guys in this department, we all love to do this,” said Piserelle.
The Dayton Volunteer Fire Department protects an estimated 20,000 people and 144 square miles. The department has two stations in the area and works with other fire departments in the area. It is a public department staffed by volunteers with a current roster of 40 members and a Ladies Auxiliary.
