Mike Rusk ~ Fire Chief

Mike was born in Geneseo, where he attended GHS.  He and his wife Pat have been married for 26 years.  They have 3 children, Seth age 24  who is married to Samie, Spencer age 21, and Sydney age 17.  Spencer has followed in his dad’s “boot steps” and is a member of the department.
Mike has served on the department since 1992.  He has held many roles and holds the position as Chief with great dignity and respect.

Mike is employed at the Geneseo School District in the Maintenance Department.

When Mike is not working and fighting fires, he enjoys working on his 1970 Monte Carlo.  After repairs and upkeep are finished, then he takes her out for race season.  He enjoys long day trips of driving to “nowhere” in his 1965 Impala Convertible and letting the wind whisk all his cares away on his 1998 Harley Davidson Heritage Springer.

His favorite food is tacos, and he has been known to frequent LaRoma’s for a taco fix.
