Greenville Township Fire Chief Ken Stiefel
GREENVILLE – Kenneth Stiefel was promoted to Greenville Township Fire Chief last week, marking a new year for the department.
“I’m happy about it. I’m excited. It’s a learning opportunity,” Stiefel said.
Stiefel worked for the Greenville Township Fire Department during its inception in 2008, and assisted the department during an interim period last year.
He is replacing previous fire chief William M. Zink, who had also been with the department at its onset.
Stiefel has previously worked for the City of Huber Heights for 22 years, where he serves as a lieutenant. He holds a Fire Science Degree, and has worked in multiple fire departments in the area.
He’s also been a Greenville resident for 11 years.
Stiefel said he doesn’t have big plans for change in the future, because the department already runs optimally.
“It’s going to be business as usual, with safety as our number one goal for both our citizens and employees,” Stiefel said.
Stiefel said he also has a good history with the Greenville Township staff, and looks forward to assisting them in any way he can.
“Honestly, the (Greenville Township Fire Department) has the nicest people there. I look forward to progressing and being fiscally responsible and trying to improve the department. But its already got it together,” he said. “Most of them have already gone the distance in the last six years.”
