After an illustrious 54-year career in the fire service, with 48 of those years dedicated to serving as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), retired Fire Chief Duane Seltzer continues to exemplify dedication, commitment, and a passion for service. Despite officially retiring from active duty, Chief Seltzer's unwavering devotion to the community and the profession is evident as he voluntarily dedicates his time to educate and inspire the next generation of first responders.

Every week, Chief Seltzer eagerly returns to the fire station, not as a duty-bound chief, but as a mentor, a teacher, and a guide. His commitment to imparting knowledge and honing skills is truly remarkable. Last night was no exception as Chief Seltzer led an engaging session, focusing on various rescue drags and fundamental ropes and rigging techniques.

"While some may choose to hang up their helmets and walk away after retirement, Chief Seltzer continues to embody the spirit of service," remarked a colleague and mentee of Chief Seltzer. "His dedication to staying current with new methodologies while also revisiting and refining traditional tactics is truly admirable."

Chief Seltzer's impact extends far beyond the confines of the fire station. His tireless efforts not only enhance the capabilities of current firefighters and EMTs but also contribute to the safety and well-being of the entire community. His commitment to excellence serves as a shining example for all aspiring first responders.

As Chief Seltzer continues to share his wealth of experience and knowledge, his legacy remains indelibly etched in the hearts and minds of those he has touched throughout his remarkable career.
