MEET OUR NEW FIRE CHIEF JOHN SCHWINNE
PRESS: September 16, 2016
John Schwinne was recently hired as Greenfield Township Fire Chief. Here is some background that John has provided us:
"I started at Greenfield Township Fire Department in the Fall of 1997 as a Volunteer. In February 1998 I was moved to part-time. I lived in Columbus at that time, and I was still single . Working at an Electrical Engineering Company in Columbus during the day. After work, I drove to the Station in Carroll where I spent the nights taking runs. I would get up at 6 am and drive home to be at work by 8 am in Columbus. I did this for a several years, and in April of 2002, Greenfield Township tested for our first full-time Firefighters.I was proud to be one of the first hired. In April 2005, I was promoted to a Lieutenant, and in June 2010, I was again promoted to a Captain. Over the years I have seen this department grow, witnessed the potential it has, and felt blessed and honored to have been chosen to represent our Greenfield Township Fire Department."
