FAIRFIELD — Chief Vince Webster of the Fairfield Fire Department will retire in early April, the city announced Monday in a press release.
Webster will vacate the position April 2.
“Chief Webster has served honorably as our fire chief since 2008, and has been an integral member of Fairfield’s leadership team,” City Manager Sean Quinn said in the release. “We will miss him tremendously.”
Webster grew up in Fairfield. He began his career 30 years ago in the Sausalito Fire Department and came to Fairfield in 1997 as an experienced battalion chief. He rose to lead a department that answers more than 9,000 calls a year.
“It has been my honor to be responsible for an environment in which our staff excels in serving the community,” Webster said in the release.
Webster will continue in community service to Fairfield through his many affiliations and memberships, Quinn said in the release. He and his wife, Sheila, support youth programs and various community improvement projects.
