Clallam County Fire District 3 and the City of Sequim are once again partnering to bring routine fire and life safety inspections to the Sequim area after filling the fire code technician vacancy this month. John McKenzie, the district’s current volunteer coordinator, was hired to reestablish fire and life safety inspections in commercial and multi-family structures in the Sequim area. McKenzie is contracted to start May 1 at about 26 hours a week with costs split between the city and fire department. Chris Lovering will start the part-time (20 hour) volunteer coordinator position the same day. Both are active volunteer firefighters. Fire Chief Justin Grider said he is excited to bring the fire code technician position back because it’s been vacant for about a year, since former technician Mike Mingee resigned to become a fire commissioner.
