White River Township Fire Department
Deputy Chief of Administration
Michael Arany began his fire service career in 1997 when he joined the Granville Fire Department as a freshman at Denison University. He has remained an active volunteer ever since, currently serving with Bloomington Township Fire Department as a firefighter and hazardous materials team member.
Michael came to White River Township Fire Department in March of 2005 and worked as a “B-Shifter” until 2007. For the next several years he sustained his relationship with the department by returning for weekend shifts despite attending school out of state and then living and working full time in Fort Wayne. When his wife’s counseling career brought the couple to Bloomington in 2010, Michael resumed his shift and later transitioned into the challenging and rewarding field of Fire Prevention.
After serving several years as Fire Marshal, Michael was awarded the position of Deputy Chief of Administration in January of 2018.
Michael holds an Associate of Science degree in Paramedic Science from Ivy Tech State College and a Bachelor of Science degree in Fire Safety Engineering Technology from Eastern Kentucky University. He maintains a number of state and professional certifications and memberships.
