It is with our deepest regards to announce the passing of Retired Fire Chief Carl Trievel.
Chief Trievel first joined the Temple Fire Company in 1966. He served as the Assistant Chief from September 1978 till June 1980. Then from June 1980 till December 1988 he served as the Fire Chief of the Department. He recently started coming around and hanging at the station with some of the members. You may have even seen him respond to a few calls with us. His passion was with the Temple Fire Company. When he retired as Chief at the end of 1988, he left some really big shoes to fill. His legacy for our department will never be forgotten. We thank him and his family for the hard work he provided for the Borough of Temple.
