Meet Dan Coffin

Here's a leader always looking towards the future of his community. Being there for 27 years, Chief Coffin is proud to be a long serving member of the Cedarville Fire Department.

Dan does so much for the community. Every year he helps host the Halloween and Christmas party, not to mention the huge parade of lights. All of these being incredible events that bring everyone together.

One of his greatest traits is his ability to teach. He takes great pride in teaching fire prevention, no matter who he's working with. Dan makes the station feel like a comfortable learning environment to everyone there, young and old.

Dan Coffin has put a lot of time and dedication into our department and other fire service groups... He wouldn't have it any other way.

Thank you Chief for all you do for your community. You're a true leader and an inspiration to everyone in and out of Cedarville.
