Sam Phillips is putting down the hose after spending two-thirds of his life fighting fires. The Clallam Fire District No. 2 chief will retire June 30 after 42 years answering emergency calls and supervising those who do, he announced this week. The three fire commissioners named Deputy Fire Chief Jake Patterson, a former Port Angeles Fire Department lieutenant, as Phillips’ successor Tuesday following an executive session. Patterson will earn $108,000 annually. Patterson, hired in 2016, lives in Fire District No. 3 and can be the District 2 chief by living within 20 minutes of the fire District’s eastern boundary at Deer Park Road.
