For over 30 years, Jim Brown has dedicated his life to helping others.
The North Bend native has clocked in thousands of hours, worked tirelessly on developing and sharpening his skills and has without a second thought jumped right into a number of hazardous, unpredictable situations to ensure the safety of those around him.
In recognition of all his hard work and commitment to the North Bend Fire Department, Brown was promoted and sworn in last month to lead the team of experienced firefighters as its new fire chief.
“I was thinking about the past here at the department of all the different people over the years who have built it to what it is today,” said Brown. “It’s very exciting and humbling to be in this position to help take the department to the next level and build for the future.”
