FIRE CAPTAIN RETIRES WITH 32 YEARS OF SERVICE

Harrison Fire Department Captain Cam Kugler, who retired April 1, was recognized at City Council July 18, 2023.

His last day on the job was a fairly ordinary, busy one, besides cake. The American flag that flew outside Fire Station 56 that day was saved for the recent celebration so that his son could attend. Mayor Bill Neyer presented Kugler with the flag and a challenge coin. He received other mementos of his service from the Fire Department. 

Kugler was recruited to be a firefighter right out of Harrison High School in 1991. With six years of part-time service, basic EMT training and firefighter school, Kugler was hired full-time in 1997. Over the years he held several positions including serving as fire inspector from 2017 to 2021. 

Kugler says that 32 years went quickly and that the technology of fighting fires has changed significantly. The training has evolved as well. 

Some of Kugler’s best memories are working with young people through the cadet program (now Explorers). In fact, Kugler continues to train future firefighters as an adjunct instructor at Cincinnati State. 

"Young people coming up in firefighter and EMT school are there for a good reason and they know they’re going to have a good job," Kugler said. "I tell them you have be an advocate for people and treat everyone like they are your grandmother."

Kugler has been married to Sherry for 28 years. Their son Silas just completed his service in the U.S. Navy. Their daughter Abby works as a medical assistant. 

Harrison Fire has two stations serving the City and surrounding communities. The department maintains a Class 2 ISO rating.
