Corner Brook Fire Department Ladder

The City Corner Brook is proceeding with organizational and operational changes based on a motion from a recent council meeting. This restructuring will align similar services in an effort to ensure complimentary resources are effectively utilized and to enhance service delivery within the organization.

A new Department of Protective Services will be created to oversee fire and emergency services and other related areas of operation. As a result of pending changes to the corporate structure the position of Fire Chief is being declared redundant. The incumbent has been advised of the proposed changes to the corporate structure.

With respect to a revised organizational structure further details will be released in the upcoming weeks. Senior management will be consulting with staff as this process evolves before finalizing decisions.

There will be no further comments on the restructuring at this time.
