The City of Westbrook announces the upcoming resignation of Fire & Rescue Chief and Local Health Officer Andrew Turcotte. The City of Westbrook has been blessed to have him lead our Fire & Rescue Department during his dedicated service and we wish him the best in the next chapter of his life!
The Fire & Rescue Chief’s position along with the Local Health Officer is a critical role for our City. To provide stability to the Department through this transition, I will appoint Assistant Chief Stephen Sloan to the role of Interim Fire & Rescue Chief and Local Health Officer effective October 29, 2021.
To backfill the void created with the interim promotion of Assistant Chief Sloan, we will seek the interest of the Captain ranks to fill the role of Interim Assistant Chief until these positions have been filled on a permanent basis at a later date.
We thank Stephen for his willingness to provide continued leadership to our Fire & Rescue Department through this transition.
