Tri-State FPD news

Excerpts from the

The Tri-State Fire Protection District Board swore in Daniel Niemeyer, a 19-year member of the fire protection district, as its new fire chief Monday.

The application process was open to candidates in and outside the Tri-State fire district, and after reviewing the applications, the board decided to choose the next fire chief from among the district’s firefighters.

In addition to working as a lieutenant with the Tri-State district, Niemeyer’s 33 years as a firefighter include working as a lieutenant with the Clarendon Heights Fire Protection District, before Tri-State annexed it in 1995, and as a firefighter with the Clarendon Hills Fire Department and the Darien-Woodridge Fire Protection District.

He is enrolled in the chief fire officer series at the Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy.

Niemeyer also is licensed to practice law. He earned his law degree from DePaul University College of Law and was a partner with the law firm Gallagher, Niemeyer, and Abrams, LLC.

Patrick Brenn was named deputy fire chief. Brenn, who was battalion chief when Jack Mancione resigned as fire chief last November, has been serving as acting chief since then.

The Tri-State district has 44 firefighters providing fire protection services to parts of Burr Ridge, Darien, Willowbrook, Willow Springs, and sections of unincorporated DuPage County.
