Crook County Fire and Rescue is pleased to announce that Dave Pickhardt has been hired as the District’s next Deputy Chief. Dave’s initial assignment is to review the District’s operation, internal communication process, performance management process and to begin an assessment of future service needs within Prineville’s Enterprise Zone. As Deputy Chief, Dave will assist with day to day operations as needed and may assume command of the Fire District in the absence of the Fire Chief.
Dave has been a long time resident of Crook County. Dave has just completed a 23 year career with Redmond Fire and Rescue where he was their long time Deputy Chief and most recently Interim Fire Chief. CCFR is very excited to add Dave to our team. With his competence and experience he will immediately be an outstanding asset to the organization.
If you would like to meet Dave, he will be in attendance at the District’s next Fire Board meeting November 15th at the Fire Station in Prineville at 9am. You can also request a scheduled meeting time by calling the Fire District at 541-447-5011.
The District is excited for Deputy Chief Pickhardt’s contribution to the District. We look forward to how he will assist with our future transition to providing 24 hour service from 3 stations and providing adequate protection to the industrial complexes within Prineville’s Enterprise Zone.
