City Announces New Fire Chief

City Announces New Fire Chief

February 1, 2021 at 10:00 am  Kamloops, Municipal, News

Kamloops BC – The City of Kamloops is pleased to announce to Steve Robinson as the new Fire Chief for Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR). Chief Robinson has been Acting Fire Chief since Chief Mike Adams retired this past December.

Chief Robinson has been in leadership with KFR since 2016, when he relocated from Surrey Fire Service to Kamloops as an Assistant Chief. Robinson began his career in the fire service as a firefighter in Surrey, BC, in 1992, and later became the Assistant Chief in charge of Operations, Dispatch, and the Fire Prevention Office. In his role overseeing Surrey’s Fire Prevention Office, he was involved with creating a HomeSafe program that focused on increasing the number of homes protected by working smoke alarms. That program was so successful that it is now being used by fire departments across Canada, including KFR.

“The City is fortunate to secure Chief Robinson in this position not only for his demonstrated leadership but along with his dedication to the fire service, team building skillset, and overall professionalism to lead as Fire Chief during these critical times,” said Byron McCorkell, the City’s Community and Protect Services Director.

Robinson’s official start date as Fire Chief is Monday, February 1, 2021.
