Jeff Prior has worked for the City since 2000.
What have you learned since working
at the City?
Each day is a learning
experience. Seeing how the Springfield
Fire Department collaborates with
other City of Springfield departments to
address the needs of the community has
been a great learning experience for me.
How does your position impact the
My position impacts the
community through fire safety and
prevention education as well as fire code
interpretation and enforcement. My goal
is to provide a fire safe community to the
citizens and visitors of Springfield.
What advice do you have for someone
thinking about coming to work for
the City as a firefighter?
I would provide someone considering
becoming a Springfield firefighter is
that this is a very rewarding job and is
much more than firefighting. Be open to
change and willingness to adapt to the
needs of our customers.
