EVERETT – Eric Hicks has notified City leaders that he has accepted a position as chief of the Skyway Fire Department.
“It has been an honor to serve Everett Fire and this incredible community for the past 18 years,” said Hicks. “I began my career in the fire service with Skyway, and I am looking forward to returning to the department as its chief.”
Hicks held a variety of roles during his time with Everett Fire, from fire inspector and investigator to assistant chief and fire marshal. He was appointed chief following Murray Gordon’s retirement in January.
The Mayor will make an interim appointment to serve as chief for the remainder of the year. Following the mayoral election this fall, City staff will work with the new administration to fill the position on a permanent basis.
