Kim Batchelor was sworn in as a Board Member on July 16th 2015.

Kim retired from MCFD#1 in 2012 where he had served since 1979. Kim worked his way through the ranks as firefighter/EMT, Engineer, Captain and then as a Battalion Chief for a total of 32 years of service to MCFD1.

Prior to MCFD1, Kim spent 6 years in the US Air Force as a firefighter. He chose to run for the position on the Marion County Fire District Board because he continues to have a deep-seated commitment to the community and to the Operational Firefighters and Paramedics.

Kim’s first priority is to provide the best service to the people in the fire district and secondly to do everything possible for the personnel to ensure they have the best environment to work in and the best equipment to work with.
