Excerpts from Centralillinoisproud.com:

After months of deliberation and debating on what the next best move is for the Peoria Heights Fire Department, they’ve come to the decision to appoint Dan Decker to be their new fire chief on Tuesday, November 7. With a vast background, Decker is the former Fire Chief for East Peoria, and has been a part of the fire service since 1991.

The Peoria Heights mayor stated that the first order of business for the new fire chief is to give an assessment on the needs of the department and take his recommendations to the board of trustees.

Decker said that he has no pre-conceived notions about what he plans to implement, he just hopes to use his many years of experience to do what is best for the department and for the city.
