Fire Chief discussed the role of the Assistant Deputy Chief position. He
advised that it will take the management team from three to four staff and
will increase the capacity and continuity of the management team. The
positon cost is similar to a union position as there are no overtime costs
associated with a management position and is not subject to other benefits
afforded to Association members. The Chief further advised that the
Assistant Deputy Chief role would take over the training division oversight,
emergency management planning and training and assist with the
implementation of the 24 hour shift trial including tracking of attendance,
training and other metrics required during the trial.
