Chatham-Kent’s fire chief has a new right-hand man.
Bob Davidson, assistant chief of Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services, is now on the job. Davidson has more than 30 years of emergency service experience and was recently recruited after serving as a deputy fire chief in a blended Fire/EMS service in Strathcona County, Alta.
“Job one for me is to support Chief Ken Stuebing and to build relationships, not only with fire and emergency service personnel, but also with other departments, agencies, stakeholders and community partners,” Davidson said in a release. “My principle objective would be to assist the organization in moving forward with its plans to improve service delivery, community safety, firefighter safety, operational excellence, and internal and external communications.”
Davidson’s primary responsibility is to oversee fire prevention and community safety education.
The new assistant chief is an advocate for the Ontario Fire Marshal’s three lines of community fire defence, the development of proactive community partnerships and the enhancement of customer focused community safety programming.
