St. Croix Fire Chief Tapped To Head Fire Service

St. Croix Fire Chief Steve Brow has been nominated by Gov. John deJongh Jr. to serve as the next director of the V.I. Fire Service, according to Government House.

“I think you will find his dedication and commitment to the Virgin Islands, and in particular to the Fire Services, make him a true public servant,” the governor wrote in a recent letter to Senate President Ronald Russell, requesting the 29th Legislature’s advice and consent in installing Brow as the top firefighter in the Virgin Islands.

Brow has served as acting fire director since the beginning of the year. Before that, he was St. Croix Fire Chief. He has been with the Fire Service for more than 20 years, starting as a firefighter in 1990.

If confirmed by the Senate, Brow will replace Victor Browne, who has assumed the leadership of the Law Enforcement Planning Commission.

“Steve Brow … is a tested leader who understands the needs of this community, and he is the right person to ensure the Fire Service best protects the lives and property of Virgin Islanders,” deJongh said.
