Following the retirement of the Embrun Fire Chief, Russell Township Council has decided to move forward with creating a single full-time Fire Chief position.

Russell Township Council has approved the appointment of Fire Chief Bruce Armstrong as a temporary Full-Time Fire Chief starting May 1, although his position will only last a year. Armstrong joined the township fire department as a volunteer over 30 years ago in 1992 and was appointed fire chief in 2004, serving alongside Embrun’s Fire Chief Brian Duhamel.  

After Duhamel announced his retirement earlier this year, the township decided to establish a new full-time Fire Chief position as set out in the township’s Municipal Business Plan. The township is seizing the opportunity to work with Chief Armstrong on improving the Fire Department before he retires as well. Armstrong will identify the Fire Department’s needs, standardize procedures, address inefficiencies, create a comprehensive job description for the permanent position, and more. 

 

Chief Armstrong has gained valuable experience, training, and team leading skills while managing the Russell Fire Station. His experience and knowledge are an important part of this next step in the township’s growth.”
