Bend Fire Chief Larry Huhn will retire in April 2013 with 30 years of service to the community.  The process to find a new chief is scheduled to begin in January 2013. Huhn will stay on until a new Fire Chief is hired.  

“It’s been an honor to be the leader of a such a fine organization with such remarkable people,” said Huhn

Huhn joined the Bend Fire Department in 1983 and was promoted to Captain in 1992, Battalion Chief/Training Officer in 1997 and Deputy Chief/Logistics Officer in 2003.  City Manager Eric King appointed Huhn Fire Chief in 2008.

“When I became a firefighter, I was looking for a career that would allow me to make a difference in the lives of others.  My career in the fire service has been very rewarding,” said Huhn.  “I couldn’t have made a better choice.”

Huhn says he’s looking forward to opening a new chapter in his life “and seeing where that may take him.”
