Sparks Fire Chiefs Gather for Historic Photo

Posted: Updated:
Several former chiefs of the Sparks Fire Department gathered together on Thursday to commemorate a little of Sparks history.

Seven former and current fire chiefs who served the City of Sparks from 1951 to 2014 gathered to take a photo together at the Sparks Fire Department headquarters on Victorian Avenue.

The former fire chiefs say the meeting is just one of the Sparks Fire Department's longstanding traditions. "We've got a tradition that goes way back to 1902, and every chief from that time on to the present came out of the ranks of the Sparks Fire Department," says Bill Farr, chief 1951-1976.

The chiefs we spoke to all said that it was an honor to be a part of the commemorative photo, and that they were proud of the Sparks Fire Department's work in our community.
