FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Matt Troiano has been awarded the position of deputy fire chief of community safety for the City of Fort St. John.

Troiano joined the Fort St. John Fire Department in the summer of 2012 as a probationary firefighter, and in 2018, he became a fire training officer and was promoted to captain.

“His hard work, dedication, and lead by example approach has allowed him to positively impact the training culture and operational readiness of the department,” said the department in a Facebook post.

Troiano explained his position saying, “This position oversees the training program, fire prevention and emergency management for the City of Fort St. John.”

“I’m happy to be here, happy to step into this new role and continue to serve the citizens of Fort St. John,” he added.

In February, the department announced Robert Norton had been selected as the city’s director of public safety and fire chief.

The former deputy fire chief served as the head of the fire department in an interim role after Darrell Blades took on the role of deputy chief administrative officer with the city.
