At the Village Board meeting on Monday, December 16, 2019, Interim Fire Chief Jeffrey Hoeflich was sworn in as the Village’s new Fire Chief.
Hoeflich joined the Skokie Fire Department in 1986. “He has served the Village with distinction,” said Village Manager John Lockerby. During this 33-year tenure with the Village, Hoeflich has progressed through the ranks of Lieutenant and Captain.
Prior to serving as Interim Chief, he served for ten years as the Training Officer for the Skokie Fire Department and also as a Battalion Chief. Hoeflich and his wife Christine are excited about entering this new chapter of their lives and are in the process of looking for a residence in Skokie.
“During the past year while serving as Interim Fire Chief, Jeff has shown outstanding leadership,” said Lockerby. “His dedication to best practices in public safety will benefit the community as he leads an outstanding
team of firefighters in protecting the Village each and every day."
