Mission Fire/Rescue Chief Ian Fitzpatrick has retired.

After 32 years in the fire service, and the last six spent in Mission as assistant chief and then chief, the former Port Moody firefighter’s last day was Feb. 28.

Fitzpatrick came to the district when deputy chief Bob Cannon announced his retirement in 2007, and worked under the late former chief Frank Ryan until he fell ill in 2008.

Fitzpatrick was promoted to chief in 2009 and held that post until now.

The hunt is now on for someone to fill the position, and in the interim, Cannon will serve as chief.
