Downers Grove Fire Department news

Excerpts from mysuburbanlife.com:

Downers Grove Deputy Fire Chief Jeffrey Pindelski will become the village’s new fire chief effective Sept. 1. He replaces Chief Jim Jackson, who will retire Aug. 31 following a 30-year career with the department.

Since joining the fire department in April 1993, Pindelski has served as a firefighter, lieutenant, battalion chief of support services, battalion chief shift commander, emergency management coordinator, deputy chief of operations, and deputy chief of administration. He has a master’s degree in public safety from Lewis University and a graduate certificate in managerial leadership.

Pindelski is a credentialed chief fire officer through the Center for Public Safety Excellence and a chief fire officer designee through the Illinois State Fire Marshal. He has participated in obtaining grant funding, negotiating union contracts, and preparing department budgets.

As manager of the ISO rating project, he helped the department obtain a Class 1 Public Protection Rating. In addition, he has authored several textbooks and numerous articles focusing on fire service tactics and leadership issues.
