City Announces New Fire Chief

Post Date:05/09/2018

WHITEHORSE – It is with great pleasure the City of Whitehorse announces the appointment of Michael Dine to the position of Fire Chief.

Dine has spent the past 20 years working for Pender Island Fire Rescue, achieving the rank of Deputy Fire Chief in 2006.

“Michael’s experience at all levels of fire service, coupled with his accomplishments on Pender Island, made him an excellent candidate for this position,” said Mayor Dan Curtis.

“We had several outstanding candidates apply for this position and we believe Michael will be the best fit for the Whitehorse Fire Department,” he added. “We would also like to thank Chris Green, who served as Acting Fire Chief for over six months in the interim. He did an excellent job.”

Dine will assume his new role on June 25th.
