Jeff Prior, Division Chief, Fire Department

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 community? 

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?

The advice 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.
