Retired Chief Richard Harvey, Mentor Fire Chief Robert Searles, and Retired Chief John Preuer (left to right)


First and foremost, I want to thank our residents for their support, without you we simply wouldn’t exist. I also want to personally thank the members of the Mentor Fire Department for their dedication, compassion and commitment to service. I am very proud of the men and women of our fire department as they seek out and implement innovative and progressive ways to provide the best service possible.
We pledge to continue to deliver professional, cost-effective services in a personal, responsive and innovative manner that will always serve the public’s best interest. As we do our best to prevent harm and be nice, please remember that we are here for you because of you. Hopefully, you will never require our assistance, but if you do, please be confident that we’ll be there.

If you have any suggestions or comments to help us serve you better, please contact me or a member of my staff by calling (440)974-5765. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. It is a privilege to serve as your Fire Chief.

Yours in safety,
Chief Robert Searles
