Deputy Chief - Operations
The Deputy Chief of Operations always has his hands full. In addition to being the Special Hazards Officer (which puts him in charge of the HazMat Team), he also oversees maintenance and supplies acquisition for Fire Headquarters and all engines, ambulances and other apparatus. Deputy Chief Doug Janssen is also the daily go-to-guy for employees and service vendors at the Fire Department. But what occupies the biggest portion of every day of Deputy Chief Janssen's time is overseeing the extensive, stringent and varied training schedule of the Mason City Fire Department. Deputy Chief Janssen was promoted to the Deputy Chief's position in 2007 after being Captain on Battalion 3. He has been with the Department since 1992. Deputy Chief Janssen can be reached at the Department's main number (641.421.3640).
