TAYLOR, B.C. — The District of Taylor announced today their warm welcome to their new Fire Chief, Edward Albury.

Albury will be taking over from interim Fire Chief Bert Eisler, who served while the District searched for a new Chief to replace Alan Stebbing, who left his position last fall. He starts his tenure on February 1, 2016, after 24 years of service.

“I look forward to becoming part of the Taylor family and I will do my best to make the department and town proud,” he says.

Albury comes from a rather worldly background, born and raised in the Bahamas, and relocating with his family on Vancouver Island, in Mill Bay.

There, he joined the Mill Bay Fire Department and worked as a mechanic as a young adult.

While he was with the fire department, he worked his way through the ranks and eventually became Captain and Training Officer. Throughout his time with the Mill Bay Fire Department he worked his way through the Fire Department ranks. He became Captain and Training officer and also received his twenty year medal with the department.

Through continuous training, Edward says it can be scary, fun and exciting but industrial firefighting was a component to his career that has been very rewarding.
