Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare said Tuesday the city is still searching for a new fire chief, more than 30 months since the last one retired. Pare, who is considered the acting chief, said the city would like to have a new chief in place “as soon as practical,” but declined to offer a timeline. “It is important that we select the right person to lead the department,” Pare told Eyewitness News. “However long it takes, we continue to search for a candidate that has the qualifications and skills to be fire chief for the Providence Fire Department. We are committed to that goal.”
