Our client, The City of Edmundston, located in north western New Brunswick is currently searching for a dynamic and competent individual to fill the role of Director / Fire Chief – Fire Department.

Edmundston as it is today dates back to 1998, following the amalgamation of four municipalities that
now make up greater Edmundston. With a population of 16 000 residents, the City of
Edmundston’s vision is to be an energetic, open and creative city. Through its municipal services,
the City strives to be effective, efficient and fair to its citizens.

In December 2012, City Council began the necessary steps to establish a single Fire Department,
as three distinct fire brigades are currently in operation within the City.

The candidate selected as the Director / Fire Chief will be responsible for planning, organizing,
managing, controlling and evaluating all activities related to fire combat and prevention. The
individual will be responsible for the implementation of integration strategies and the operational
harmonization of the three (3) fire brigades located in Edmundston. The individual will manage
human resources, budgets, and equipment of the department and will be required to be on call and
present during interventions.

As the successful candidate you have a Firefighter level ll (journeyman) certification from the Province of New Brunswick or equivalent, combined with a college diploma in Fire Safety / Fire Rescue or a certificate in Fire Services Administration, Public Administration, Business Administration or a related field.

You have a minimum of ten (10) years of experience in the field of Fire Safety, including five (5) years with management responsibilities ideally gained in a unionized environment within a municipality. Your superior managerial and human resources management skills will help you ease the team through the transition process. Bilingualism (French and English spoken and written) is a must.
