Retirement – John Keating, Fort Scott Fire Department

John Keating has retired after a 25-year career with the Fort Scott Fire Department. He began his career in 1993 as a volunteer firefighter, eventually working his way through the ranks to captain, his most recent title.

Keating has worked for three fire chiefs the last 25 years, most recently Paul Ballou, who has served as chief since 2009.

After Keating’s retirement, some shuffling in the department included promotion of Jacob May and Clint Roberts to the position of captain; Alex Schafer and Clint Lawrence to lieutenant; and Scott Shelton, Dalton Carpenter and Ryan Thomas from reserve to full-time firefighters.
