The City of Cranbrook is looking for a new fire chief.

Wayne ‘Dez’ Desjardins, who was hired on six months ago, has departed due to personal and family reasons, according to a press release from the City of Cranbrook.

Desjardins replaced Wayne Price, the former long-time fire chief who retired and successfully ran for city council in the 2018 municipal election.

Desjardins came to Cranbrook after serving 36 years in the military, the last dozen of which were in a fire protection role.
