Golden Valley Fire appoints new assistant chief

With the departure of GVFD’s Assistant Fire Chief Ted Martin, his replacement Jack Yeager stepped in and hit the ground running on July 23rd.  Chief O’Donohue reported that the Board of Directors authorized a temporary appointment for this leadership position until a full-time replacement could be selected at a later date.  O’Donohue stated that Yeager has been offered this position for 1-year, with a 30-day option for the District to terminate his employment at any time.  O’Donohue continued, we fully expect Jack to pursue the full-time position when that time comes. With several large projects assigned to the Fire Chief by the Board for the remainder of the year, the District needs an assistant chief with a strong background in Operations to continue on the growth path and pace set for the organization.  Assistant Chief Yeager, who has 28-years’ experience in the fire service, will handle all aspects of the Operations Division under the direct supervision of the Fire Chief.   PHOTO (Courtesy / Butch Meriwether): Assistant Chief Jack Yeager   Karen Christensen Administrative Assistant Golden Valley Fire District (928) 565-3479 Email: karen@goldenvalleyfire.org...

Donation makes Golden Valley home safer

Golden Valley Firefighters install smoke alarms in the home of Golden Valley resident Debra Eaton under the newly developed “Robert P. Davies Memorial Residential Fire Safety Program”, budget named after the late Robert Davies.  Debra qualified because she is becoming a guardian to three minors, and safety requirements are mandated by the Arizona Children Association, before the guardianship can take place. Prior to his death, Mr. Davies anonymously gave the Fire District $1,000.00 cash for this fund after being awarded the Carnegie Hero Fund award for his part in the rescue of a woman from a house fire in Golden Valley. Following his death, Robert’s girlfriend Earlene Mahar and his family partnered with the Golden Valley Fire District to make his anonymous donation public and to establish the fund to help those who requested the smoke alarms who needed the financial assistance from the District to purchase and protect their home.   Persons wishing to donate to this perpetual fund are encouraged to call GVFD at 565-3479 or come by the Administrative offices at 3327 N. Mayer Rd.   Left to Right: Engineer Luke Weber, Debra Eaton’s daughter Destinee, FF Robert Cole, Assistant Chief Jack Yeager assist with the installation of three smoke...
