New Fire Commissioner Selected

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue is pleased to introduce Dr. Guy Earle as our newest Fire Commissioner.   Dr. Earle was selected last night after an interview process conducted by the Board of Fire Commissioners for CKFR.

Dr. Earle recently retired after more than 40 years as a medical doctor, most of his career here in the Central Kitsap area.  In addition to his extensive medical knowledge, his background includes experience working with fire districts throughout Kitsap, Mason, and Jefferson Counties.

“I look forward to working with Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue,” he said as he was sworn into the position earlier today. “It’s been a few years since I’ve partnered with the fire service and I look forward to this new opportunity.”

Dr. Earle’s first meeting as Commissioner will take place on April 10th.
