Osceola, Ark.

A letter from the Chief:

As of April 1, 2020, I started my new position as Fire Chief for the City of Osceola. I am very humbled and thankful for the opportunity to lead this great department in its future endeavors. None of this would be possible without the help and support of all the members of the OFD. We have a very talented and close-knit group of hardworking firefighters, who I believe can accomplish any task thrown their way.

PeterHillAs with any new transition, other promotions are also made.

I would like to recognize the following firefighters:

Jason Garey has been promoted to Asst. Chief. I am looking forward to working alongside Jason on all fire department matters, including his diligent work on acquiring grants for the city and the OFD. Jason will run the "C" shift.

Ray Williams, our longest-serving firefighter, is Captain of the "B" shift. Ray will also be our " go-to guy" for all administrative functions of the OFD.

Bud Gore has moved up the Captain of the "A" shift and has also taken over the duties as the Training Officer. Bud has really excelled at building and promoting our Rope and Technical Rescue capabilities here at the OFD.

To all the other officers, drivers, and firefighters with the OFD, I thank you again for all your hard work and support and look forward to accomplishing all our goals. Our mission together should be to make all those who came before us proud of how their department is progressing, and continue t strive to provide the best services possible to the citizens of this great City.

Thank you,

Peter Hill
