Spokane Valley Fire Department Chief Bryan Collins will retire March 1 after what will be nine years as the department’s leader, according to an SVFD news release. Collins and the Board of Fire Commissioners will conduct a search process that will ultimately lead to the selection of the next fire chief. “It has been my pleasure to serve the Spokane Valley Fire Department community these past eight years,” Collins said in the release. During his time as chief, Collins brought about a modern 911 system with Spokane Regional Emergency Communications; implemented Community Risk Reduction programs for fire safety practices and education; made the department one of two accredited fire departments east of the Cascade Mountains; and maintained a Washington State Rating Bureau 2 rating, which directly benefits Spokane Valley through lower insurance rates.
