In preparation for William Pernett’s final day as fire chief at North Whatcom Fire and Rescue (NWFR), fire commissioners voted on November 15 to appoint assistant chief Joe Noonchester to the position on an interim basis. “My goal is to continue where fire chief William Pernett left off,” Noonchester said in an email. “Working directly for him these last few years has been very beneficial for my personal growth and I want to continue the forward thinking efforts that have been put in motion.” Pernett announced his resignation from the position in October, citing an interest in pursuing other professional opportunities. His last day will be Monday, December 31. As interim fire chief, Noonchester will be responsible for district budgeting, operations, human resources functions and district oversight in addition to ensuring the safety of the community.
