Bowen’s fire chief resigns

Thompson has been Bowen's fire chief since 2014.

After five years as Bowen’s fire chief, Ian Thompson has resigned.

In a press release Friday, Bowen Island Municipality said that Thompson would stay on as fire chief until the municipality appoints his successor.

“Ian was a volunteer member of the Bowen Island Fire Department for eight years, four of which he was the department’s training officer, before being appointed fire chief in 2014,” reads the press release.

“His dedication and service to the fire department, the municipality and to the community have been immeasurable. Ian will be greatly missed by all.”

“We would like to sincerely thank our Fire Chief for his years of service, and wish him the best in his future endeavours.”

The fire chief job is posted on the Bowen Island Municipality website with a deadline of April 12, so presumably Thompson will still be patrolling in the fire chief truck until then.
