BANGOR, Maine — The city’s longtime fire chief plans to retire in February of 2012, according to City Manager Catherine Conlow.
Jeffrey Cammack, a 32-year Bangor firefighter and chief of the department for 15 years, joined the Bangor Fire Department in 1979, according to the city. He is a graduate of the Fire Science Technology Program at Southern Maine Technical College.
“Chief Cammack has been a leader through many challenging times in the Fire Department, and has provided a consistently strong presence in navigating many changes,” Conlow said in a statement. “The City of Bangor is truly grateful for Chief Cammack’s many years of service, and we are extremely proud of the professional fire department that he leaves in his wake.”
Conlow credited Cammack with overseeing many milestones in the department, including the completion of Station 6 on Griffin Road, which opened in 2008.
She said the search for a new fire chief would begin soon.
Cammack could not be reached for comment early Friday afternoon.
