Chief David Brogan has been with the fire department since February 1992. In that time, he has served as a Firefighter, Pump Operator, Lieutenant, Captain, and Fire Marshal. He was one of the original 9 paramedics when the department began providing advanced life services to the community.
Dave held many elected positions as a member of the Dearborn Heights Professional Firefighters Union Local 1355, giving him experience with management and labor. He has worked in both fire suppression and fire prevention. These positions have prepared Dave to be a well-rounded Fire Chief.
The fire service has been a big part of Dave's life, as his father was a firefighter for the City of Detroit, retiring as Senior Chief after 38 years of service. Dave is married to his wife of 22 years and has three children.
In October 2013, he completed Eastern Michigan University's School of Staff and Command for the fire service. Dave is also a member of the National Fire Protection Association and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
