We are excited to announce that the Siletz Valley Fire District will have a new Fire Chief on November 1st. Welcome Chief Glenn Fluhr!
Chief Fluhr comes to us from Grass Valley, Oregon and South Sherman Fire & Rescue. He has 35 years of public service, including 20 years as a firefighter and eight years as Fire Chief. Chief Fluhr said "I'm excited to start a new adventure, working with the District's personnel and serving the Siletz community."
Chief Fluhr will bring his children and parents with him to Siletz. His oldest son Zack, 20, is a firefighter and EMT. Amber, who he has raised as a daughter and 23, is a firefighter, EMT and is working towards her Advanced EMT certification. He has two school-aged sons as well, Aaron, 12, and Scott,10. Zack and Amber will join our Siletz Valley Fire District team as volunteers.
His three children are enrolled with the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and they are looking forward to living in a Native community with a strong cultural presence.
The SIletz Valley Fire District is excited to welcome our new Chief and his family to our community in November. In the meantime, he will be visiting periodically to get to know our volunteers and operations, explore the Siletz Valley Fire District, and search for a permanent residence. If you see him around town, be sure to say hello!
