The City of Warrensburg has a new Fire Chief. City Manager Harold Stewart announced that Robert Shaw, former DuQuoin Fire Chief and thirty four year veteran of that department, has been hired as Warrensburg Fire Chief effective September 3.

Stewart says,  “Warrensburg’s Fire Department has a very strong reputation for professionalism and continuous improvement. Bob Shaw possesses strong leadership experience and a record of supporting and encouraging training and employee safety, life safety code enforcement and economic development, all of which will enable him to hit the ground running”.

Chief Shaw received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Fire Service Management from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.

The City of Warrensburg will hold a meet and greet for the public to introduce themselves to Chief Shaw sometime this fall.
