“I am excited to come back to the community to continue the progression of fire protection for our community and its visitors,” Deputy Chief Seth said. “I am also happy to bring back some of the positive and negative things that I was lucky enough to learn while working in various municipal fire services”.
SNFES looks forward to Deputy Chief Seth’s contributions to our strong leadership team. Please welcome Deputy Chief Michael Seth into our Fire Service family.
“Having Micheal return to our community is a big win for our community,” Chief Mark B. Hill said.
