County’s first female fire chief leads Perry Township department

February 18, 2012

VALIER— The Perry Township Volunteer Fire Company in Valier has been a large part of Kris Grove's life since the early '90s, and she recently accepted the position of fire chief.

As far as anyone familiar with fire department history can confirm, Grove is the first female fire chief in the history of Jefferson County.
Grove said she first became interested in joining the Perry Township Fire Company after having served as one of the fire hall cleaners.

"The reason I first joined was because I have a passion to help people," she said. "I believe when someone needs help, you help them."
