Wunder to take over as GVFD Fire Chief July 1
Veteran firefighter Chuck Wunder will serve as Green Valley Fire District’s new chief starting July 1, with the retirement of Simon Davis, who has served as the district’s first chief since 2000.
Wunder most recently headed GVFD Operations and has been Acting Chief since July, when district officials began a reorganization plan in anticipation of the leadership transition. Also driving managerial shifts are impending retirements of several upper-level managers in the next few years, officials noted.

GVFD Begins Community Survey
The District is initiating a Community Survey that will ask residents about what they need or want for local fire and emergency services. The Survey will also give residents an opportunity to learn more about and place a possible value on new programs and services that may be offered within the GVFD.
Since the survey is done by phone, the staff asks that residents to engage with the surveyors and not hang up too quickly. Only basic demographic information will be requested of the survey. Personal identifiers, such as social security numbers, will not be asked by the surveyors.
If you have questions, contact Acting Battalion Chief, Dan Modrzejewski at GVFD headquarters: 625-9400. The survey will end about May 5.
