The Salt Spring Island Fire Protection District is pleased to announce that their current Acting Fire Chief Arjuna George has accepted the position of Fire Chief offered to him by the District. The employment agreement was previously approved by the full Board of Trustees. Special recognition goes to former chair Linda Lee and the Human Resources Committee who worked diligently, along with the Board, to create the employment agreement.

The Board of Trustees is very pleased to be able to make this announcement and to place the epaulettes on the shoulders of Chief George, one of Salt Spring's own who has been with the fire service since 1997. Chief George has proven his dedication to the Department, he has demonstrated his skills on the fire ground in a command role, in the office as an administrator, and as an advisor at trustees’ Board meetings. Chief George has earned the respect of trustees, staff and members of Salt Spring Island Fire/Rescue. Please join me us congratulating Chief George as he assumes his new role.
