Battalion Chief Schroeder Retires

May 8, 2023

This morning we said “Bon Voyage” to Battalion Chief Diane Schroeder as she closed her fire service chapter and starts her retirement chapter. Chief Schroeder ended her 24-year career, which started at Aurora Fire Rescue for almost 20 years, before coming to Louisville.

In the good times and bad, Chief Schroeder was always there to lend a hand, give her support, shed a tear, and, most of all, laugh at the firehouse kitchen table. Her impact on the organization, the firefighters, and the citizens is immeasurable and will last for years.

A heartfelt thank you, “Lady Tango.” We will miss you, and we love you.
