The internationally accredited Los Alamos Fire Department has a new chief and a new path forward. The goals, functions, objectives and measures of the department are outlined in a 2012-2016 Strategic Plan.
Part of implementing the plan is filling several top level openings that have occurred recently due to retirements.
“We’re about midway to getting a new deputy chief on board and we’ll fill other leadership openings that we have in the department shortly after that,” Chief Troy Hughes said. “We hope to make a decision on a new deputy chief by Friday.”
Hughes chairs a panel of seven tasked with determining the best persons for the senior-level openings.
