Whitehorse – The City of Whitehorse is pleased to announce that Jason Everitt has been named as the new Fire Chief.
With nearly 30 years of experience, Everitt has served in the industrial, volunteer, composite and career fire sectors. His background also includes several years with Emergency Medical Services, serving as an Advanced Life Support Paramedic.
“Jason’s experience and unique set of abilities made him the superior candidate,” said Mayor Dan Curtis. “We are looking forward to welcoming him to our community and are excited for his start in January.
