Martin (Marty) Fraser is the City’s Fire Chief.
My wife Nancy and I moved to Cedar Springs in August 1972 and made a home for our 3 children that were raised in Cedar Springs and attended school at Cedar Springs Public Schools. I joined the Fire Dept in April 1977 and have been a member since then. In the fall of 2008, I thought I had enough of the Fire fighting / Medical Rescue activities and took about 2 years off from the Dept. After some coaxing from the members of the department, I decided I would return and assist the citizens of the community. At that time the Fire Chief had stepped down and the position became open. I applied and the City placed me in the Chief’s position. If my math is correct, I have been an active member and mentor to quite a few members for almost 39 years. I look forward to the good things I see in Cedar and surrounding communities and have a couple of more things on my bucket list before I retire from the Department. Please feel free to contact myself or the City Hall staff with anything that we may assist you with.
