New LNK Fire Chief voted in

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Monday, the Lincoln City Council voted in Dave Engler as the new Fire Chief.

“It’s just been an amazing career, and it’s an amazing city to work in,” commented Engler. “Some people would say, you achieved your dream, but I never actually dreamed that I would be in this position.”

Engler, a 25-year-veteran with the Lincoln Fire department, has been the Acting Chief since former Fire Chief Michael Despain stepped down in March of 2020.

Following an extensive interview process, Mayor Lierion Gaylor Baird announced she would be nominated Engler for the position on March 31.
