Pete Fisher and Ryan Quinn have been promoted to Assistant Chief with the Edina Fire Department. Fisher began his new role as Training-Safety Chief Dec. 3 and Quinn will begin his new role as EMS Chief Jan. 2.
“Both individuals come to their new position qualified and ready to work. Chief Fisher is eager to set a new stage for our training program and we are excited to see him in this position,” said Fire Chief Tom Schmitz.
Fisher began his fire career with the Edina Fire Department in 2001 and worked there as a paramedic-firefighter until 2017, when he was selected for a special assignment as task force administrator for Minnesota Task Force One, a 200-member urban search & rescue task force.
While he said he misses many aspects of shift life, he has always been interested in the training side of fire service.
