Port Hope Council approves bylaw to appoint current Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Ogden to the position of Acting Fire Chief

During a June 7 council meeting, Port Hope Council approved a bylaw to appoint current Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Ogden to the position of Acting Fire Chief, Community Emergency Management Coordinator, Emergency Management Program Committee Chair, and Municipal Emergency Control Group Director.

Director of Protective Services and Fire Chief Dan Smith’s last day with the Municipality was May 27, 2022. Until a recruitment process is completed, it is necessary for Council to appoint an individual to the acting position to fulfil the role. This will ensure leadership continuity and the sustained day-to-day management of operations related to Fire and Emergency Services.
