Terry became the Assistant Chief in 2004. During this time, Terry also served as the Director of the Honor Guard and the department began offering Advanced Life Support services.
Terry was named the eleventh Fire Chief in 2009. He restructured the command staff and brought a fresh look to the department’s equipment. Chief Allen also introduced a new floppy-eared member to their team, Shadow.
To serve this many years requires support from those at home. It would be remiss of us not to acknowledge Terry’s family, all, who at one time, served the Erlanger community as well. His loving wife, Sunny, supported Terry in all his endeavors and found camaraderie with the Fire/EMS Auxiliary. Terry’s sons, Bill and Matt, both followed in their father’s footsteps and became firefighters, his step-daughter, Amanda, was a fire explorer, and son-in-law, Marcus, a firefighter/paramedic.
