Fire Chief Jim Neidhard Retiring
December 31, 2020 marks the last day of Fire Chief Jim Neidhard's career with the fire service. This marks the end of a 35-year career. Chief Neidhard began his career in the fire service as a volunteer firefighter at Washington Township in 1985. He began his full-time career in 1990 as a Firefighter/Paramedic at Miamisburg before returning to Washington Township in 1993. He served in various roles during his 21-year tenure at Washington Township and ultimately served as their Deputy Chef. Jim was hired by the City of Bellbrook as the City’s second full-time Fire Chief in January of 2014. During his tenure in Bellbrook, the department obtained an ISO rating of 2, which put the department in the top 3% of the nation. He digitized the department’s reporting technology, updated all department policies to be in line with best practices, and secured a grant for the department’s CPR LUCAS devices. Chief Neidhard also saw the passage of a new levy in 2018, which allowed the increase of staffing to safer numbers. He has overseen numerous equipment and apparatus purchases to provide the department with the tools necessary to provide excellent service to the community. Chief Neidhard has served Bellbrook well over the last seven years and has forever left his mark on the department and the community, and for that, we thank him and wish him well in his well-deserved retirement!
