Apple Valley Fire Chief Sid Hultquist is honored to serve the community and is inspired by the people he has met along the way. “Being here in Apple Valley serving as the fire chief is the highlight of my 33 years as a firefighter,” Hultquist said. The men and women who make up the Apple Valley Fire Protection District have found an ally in Hultquist since he came on board as the fire chief ten months ago. “Sid is a huge proponent of community service,” said Capt. James “Buddy” Peratt.
