Chief Pratt Announces Retirement

Chief Larry E. Pratt has announced his retirement at the end of this year from the Kearney Fire and Rescue Protection District. The Board of Directors has begun the process to select his successor.

Larry’s service began with the Kearney Volunteer Fire Department as a junior firefighter in 1963. He was one of approximately a half dozen students who were dismissed from Kearney High School to respond on calls during his high school career due to a lack of manpower in the mid 1960’s.
