A Message from the Chief

 Chief Czerwinski


The Pittsfield Fire Department has a long history of providing fire protection to the citizens of Pittsfield.  Having spent the last 22 years working as a firefighter, Lieutenant, Captain, Deputy, and now as Chief, I have seen many changes to this exceptional department.

Operating with half of the personnel we had in 1977, this department responded to almost 8000 calls last year, ranging from blazing structure fires to assisting an elder off the floor.

The personnel of the Pittsfield fire department deals with these emergencies every day with the expertise and skill you would expect from the people you call on when you need them the most.

It is with pride that I lead this fine group of well-trained, professional individuals into the next generation of providing fire protection, education and community service to the citizens of this great city.


Chief Robert Czerwinski
