City of Regina appoints new fire chief

City of Regina appoints new fire chief”

Layne Jackson was introduced by City Manager Chris Holden on Tuesday at City Hall.

Jackson has served in a number of roles with Regina Fire and Protective Services over the last two decades, including eight years as deputy chief.

After a six month search, the city of Regina has found it's next Fire Chief.

The city manager said Jackson was chosen for his leadership and ability to work well with others. "He has a reputation, and he has experience that will set him up to be successful in the position".

Regina is also one of only seven Canadian cities to have global accreditation for it's fire department, that was renewed earlier this summer.

An executive search firm narrowed the list to 16 qualified candidates from across the country, plus two internal ones.

In a news release, Jackson said he was honoured to continue on as chief. Of those 18 candidates, five were interviewed.

"Having the experience of serving in different capacities throughout the years and understanding the total programs from training, to inspections, investigations to fire operations, emergency management, bylaw enforcement, it adds a lot of having that experience and that working knowledge", he said.

"It's definitely a chance to make it my own. It's key and it's fundamental to our firefighters providing a good quality service and being safe out in the community when they respond", he said. Part of that evaluation involves training improvements for staff.
