Last Call For Kurtenbach

Today is the last call for retiring Yankton Fire Chief Tom Kurtenbach.

After holding a number of positions with the Pierre fire department, Kurtenbach applied for the open chief spot with the Yankton Fire Department, a position he’d take over in the spring of 2005. Kurtenbach announced his intended retirement from the City of Yankton last month.

Kurtenbach says he has mixed emotions when it comes to retirement…

Kurtenbach adds that his greatest accomplishment will be helping with the mental health needs of local first responders…

Kurtenbach said he will be staying in Yankton following his retirement. Brad Moser will take over as interim chief today.
