South County Fire declines to select fire chief

Post Date:11/16/2019 2:27 PM

The South County Fire Board of Commissioners interviewed three finalists for the position of fire chief on Nov.15.

Finalists were Bryan Brice, Chris Riley and Brian Schaeffer.  “All of the fire chiefs were experienced and knowledgeable, but the Board did not find the right fit for South County Fire.  The Board thanks the fire chiefs for their participation and wishes them well in the future,” said Board Chair Jim Kenny.

The Board will defer future action on the fire chief search until January when newly elected fire commissioners join the Board.

South County Fire is the largest provider of fire and emergency medical services in Snohomish County, serving more than 250,000 residents in unincorporated communities and the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace.
