Government seeks fire chief

The government is advertising for the post of chief fire officer nearly a year after Dennom Bodden retired from that post last May after 40 years of service with the department.  

Acting Chief Rosworth McLaughlin has filled the position since Mr. Bodden’s departure.  

The post, which pays between $96,000 and $118,000 per year, puts the holder in charge of 125 people and 24/7 fire service operations around the Cayman Islands.  

Fire responses at both airports and standard domestic firefighting must be managed with a budget of $11.5 million annually.  

Qualifications include a four-year university degree in fire science, fire management or public administration with 10 years of experience at a management level or 15 years managing firefighting operations.  

The successful applicant will be charged with implementing changes to the service suggested in a recent review by U.K. senior fire advisers.
