November 28th marks the end of era as Division Chief Fire Marshal Todd Blomdahl retires after 22 years of service to the department and the community; first as a Firefighter/EMT, then as a Fire Inspector, and finally as the Division Chief Fire Marshal for the last 15 years.
Chief Blomdahl has been responsible for a plans review and code enforcement programs that ensured all new and existing businesses in the district fall in line with all applicable fire and life safety codes, thus ensuring the safety of the citizens, visitors, and firefighters of the district.
