Fire Chief settles into role at station



The third time was the charm for Michael Neujahr to be named the Copperas Cove Fire Chief. Making the move from the Killeen Fire Department where he served since 2002, Neujahr has settled into his office at Central Fire Station and is now in his third week of work. “I was active duty in the military and one of my soldiers told me about volunteering with the Killeen department and I tried it out and got knee deep and loved it,” he said. “It has been uphill from there. I knew when I was active duty I wanted to go to the fire academy and went to EMT school at night and fell in love with it.”
