Shane Fitzsimmons stands down as fire chief
30th April 2020
His efforts during the recent bushfire crisis were not just a reflection of his expertise, but also of the person he is.
After 30 years in the NSW Rural Fire Service, he leaves today to take up a new role as the State's Commissioner of Resilience and as Deputy Secretary of Emergency Management.
On behalf of everyone in the Lake Macquarie community, I thank him again and wish him well in the new role.
