Meet the Command Staff
Meet the Surrey Fire Service Command Staff.
The Surrey Fire Service is a dynamic, innovative fire service that serves one of Canada's fastest growing cities.
The Command Staff is a group of equally dynamic people with a wealth of experience from both inside and outside of the fire service. Together, under the leadership of Fire Chief Thomas, they work to keep Surrey on the cutting edge of the emergency services sector.
