Stephen D. Parsons
Steve began his fire service career in the 1970's as a volunteer in the Cross Lanes area. After working for the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department for eight years he decided to pursue his first love full-time at the St. Albans Fire Department. "The Fire Service is very rewarding because it provides you the opportunity to serve people and help them in a time of need". When not involved with the department he spends time cycling both on road and mountain bikes, hunting and fishing as well as anything in the outdoors. Steve has traveled to Malawi, Africa twice as a Missionary to provide training to that country's firefighters. The country of 11 million has only four fire departments. While in Africa he also traveled to remote villages in Mozambique to help establish literacy projects. In March of 2010 he traveled to Haiti after the devastating earthquake and was attached to the Delaware Medical Response Team in Jacmel where he supervised the triage of over 200 patients per day. "The devastation has left a lasting impression", Chief parsons said, "He visits Haiti with a team each year from his church and will be building an orphanage for the "Hands and Feet Project" in Grand Goave. In November 2011 he started his own street ministry, Taking It To The Streets", to help the homeless, the hungry and seniors in care homes.

St. Albans Fire Chief Steve Parsons said the levy is not a new tax, and is just a continuation of the same levy that has been in place since 1951. He said the fire department answers about 1,700 calls a year, and failure to renew the levy will hurt the city.

Despite an aggressive campaign over the years to educate the community about the importance of smoke alarms, and several alarm giveaways, fire chief Steve Parsons says too many homes still don't have the life-saving devices. And after four fire deaths in the past seven months, he's more determined than ever to make a difference.
"You know, our goal is to save lives. We're a service agency, and when that doesn't happen, no matter how hard you try, it does take a toll. I just think we need to do everything humanly possible to save those lives," said Steve Parsons, St. Albans Fire Chief.
That's why firefighters are going to all 4900 homes in the city limits, talking to residents about smoke alarms, giving them away, and even installing them.
"This is the only way of making sure they get installed at the proper location and that they actually make it to the ceiling," said Parsons.
