Submitted by Newz Group – September 28, 2016

Lindsborg Public Safety Director Tim Berggren announced that Lindsborg Volunteer Fire Chief Kent Ebling has, after almost thirty years of service, decided to hang up his fire hat and retire as a volunteer firefighter. Berggren acknowledged that Ebling has served the community with dedication to the fire service beginning in 1986 and rising through the ranks to assume the duties of chief. He joins a list of Fire Chiefs that have served our Community well and left the service better than it was before.

Assistant Chief Matt Clark will assume the duties of Fire Chief. Matt is a firefighter for the City of Salina and has been a member of the Lindsborg volunteer department for ten years.

The Lindsborg Volunteer Department provides manpower for the Lindsborg Fire Department and McPherson County Rural Fire District No. 8. Aside from the city of Lindsborg the department provides coverage for an area in the north central part of McPherson County and a portion of south central Saline County. The county has mutual aid agreements with surrounding departments and in large events provides and receives added resources.

The department has a twenty-four person roster of volunteers who live and work in and around the community of Lindsborg. The volunteers are notified via a pager system and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The department trains a minimum of twice a month on fire control and suppression, vehicle extrication, hazmat events, water rescue and more.
