Our leadership consists of the Chief, two assistant Chiefs, and six Captains.
Chief Todd Daming
Chief Daming has been a member of the Luce Fire organization since 1980. He holds fire service certifications in general firefighting, strategy and tactics, rescue, firefighter instructor, hazardous materials, emergency driving and is also an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). He has attended many seminars on management, fire scene investigation, laws and personnel issues.
Chief Daming has held the Chief of Department office from 1992 through 2006 and again continuously since 2009. The chief has worked as an EMT on ambulances in Spencer and Warrick County. He and his wife Rita, have been a lifelong resident of Luce Township. Chief Daming has served along side his father, Paul and brother Tom, on the fire department. Currently, his son Tyler serves the department as a firefighter as well. The chief’s main objectives for the fire department and community is to
- provide the best service that funding and manpower will allow and
- ensure all members go home to their families at the end of each event to which they respond.
Service to the Community
Below you will find the service and a short explanation. These are not all-inclusive as we wear many hats.
The majority of our call volume is medical emergencies. Our members have the training to perform lifesaving measures until EMS arrives.
We put the wet stuff on the red stuff. Meaning, we put the water on the fire. Our members are constantly training to better ourselves in fire protection. This is to better serve our community and save lives.
As there is a highway running close or through our small communities, some times accidents happen. When they do, we are there. We have the tools to cut cars apart if the situation warrants.
We have large farming areas in our township with multiple agriculture companies. This can present HAZ-MAT situations and we are ready to respond.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many runs/calls does Luce Fire have on average per year?
"Our average run volume is around 240 runs per year. So at least 1 run every 1.5 days or 4.6 runs per week."
How many homes/businesses are served by Luce Fire?
"We serve in excess of 1,200 houses/businesses for our Township. Luce Township is 53.32 square miles in area."
How many hours of service/training do our members have per year?
"Our members average over 4,300 hours of service to our community, every year."
Is my home insurance affected by the fire department?
"Short answer, yes. The type & amount of monthly training, volume of runs, type and amount of equipment, number & type of fire hydrants and overall condition of our fire service does have a direct correlation to your insurance premiums. We work very hard to keep those numbers low for you, especially being a volunteer department."
Career vs Volunteer Departments and why is Luce Fire Volunteer?
"We have built our department from a small one room department into what it is today. We have worked diligently since 1964 to provide the best service to our community, that we can. A full Career Dept would cost the Township well over a $1 million/year, simply something that could not be afforded currently."
