Tofino Volunteer Fire Department Update

Posted: Feb 14, 2024   |   By: Communications

The District of Tofino would like to announce recent changes with the Tofino Volunteer Fire Department.

After 11 years of dedicated service, including a year as Fire Chief, Emily Coombs decided to step down from her role in early 2024. The District of Tofino extends its heartfelt thanks to Emily for her long-standing commitment and contributions to the Tofino Volunteer Fire Department.

Stepping into the position of Fire Chief is Mark McKeough. Mark has been an integral part of the department for 11 years, serving as Lieutenant since 2017 and as Captain since 2020. In 2023, Mark took on the responsibility of Deputy Fire Chief and Fire Training & Inspection Officer.

Taking on the role of Deputy Fire Chief and Fire Training & Inspection Officer is Damon Johnson. Damon has been a dedicated member of the department since 2016, and his leadership was recognized when he was appointed Lieutenant in 2022.

With their unwavering commitment to public safety, the District is confident Mark & Damon will excel in their roles, ensuring the continued protection of our community.
