Marshfield: Deputy Fire Chief Beagle, a great asset, set to retire

A well-known Marshfield public safety official is getting ready to retire this coming Tuesday, and the community showing its appreciation for his years of service.

Deputy Fire Chief Jack Beagle joined the Marshfield Fire Department back in July of 1977, and has served in various capacities over the years–including serving twice as deputy chief.

Marshfield Fire Chief Kevin Robinson said Beagle has been a great asset for almost 34 years.

“He has been a great asset to me, a great asset to the department. He’s really taken on some projects and moved the department forward. Whatever task we ask him to do, he steps right in,” said Robinson.

“He’s continuing to work to the last minute–he is actually going to come in Tuesday to put some finish touches on the fire alarm office.”

Robinson said that project is just one of many tasks Beagle has done, and done well, to bring that office up-to-date from the 1970s to present.

The Marshfield Fire Department invited the public to an open house at their headquarters Friday afternoon to honor Beagle.
