New deputy fire chief introduced to council

By Karen Fallon

Amherstburg’s Fire Chief Randy Sinasac introduced James Ouellette as his second-in-command, to council at the meeting held February 22.

After an “exhausting search” says Sinasac, the decision was made to hire from within the department.

Ouellette, he added, brings “40 plus years” of experience to the position.
The new Deputy Fire Chief says he has developed a lot of love and passion for the job.

“It is that same passion that will drive me to be successful,” he told council.
Mayor Wayne Hurst says he believes it is advantageous to fill a vacancy from within.

“We as a council and I am certain the residents of the Town of Amherstburg, are please to see two local boys at the top of the department,” said Hurst. “We know the department is going to be in good hands and there will be a smooth transition.”
