Chief’s Message

Hello Iona McGregor Fire District and thank you for visiting our web site. Through this media, you can learn more about the exciting efforts and activities engaged here at the Iona McGregor Fire District as we strive to be a leading provider of Fire and Emergency Services for this community. We are dedicated to the continuous improvement and implementation of our mission to serve you!

As a lifelong resident of the Southwest Florida area, I have served this district and witnessed its growth through the last 35 years. I am humbled and most proud for the opportunity to serve as your Fire Chief.

We desire you, our local community, to be pleased and proud of the knowledge, skills, professionalism, and determination demonstrated by our employees. We believe in the uniqueness that is an, “Independent Special Fire District”. This allows us a delightfully personal approach to what may otherwise often seem slightly beyond the touch of local citizens.

We appreciate you being involved and engaged with who we are as well. On a day-to-day basis, I always try to encourage our citizens to stop by, call or just say hello to myself, or our Fire Marshal, or any number of our professional staff who will eagerly care for your needs or questions.

Thank you all; our residents, guests, and seasonal visitors for your continued support and patronage. Again, it is my privilege to serve you, and I look forward to growing in our service to you as an integral part of this great community.

Yours in Safety,
Fire Chief David Howard
