Iroquois Falls has a new fire prevention officer, a matter of weeks after the departure of Tyler Mongeon.

Mayor Pat Britton says the job has gone to Iroquois Falls resident Marc Dubé.

“Marc’s been on the (volunteer fire) department for a number of years, 20 if not a little over,” the mayor points out. “He’s also the former bylaw officer.”

Part of his job in the bylaw department was building inspection. “Lots of knowledge,” Britton adds. “He still has to take courses for the fire prevention part of it.  But being bylaw and building as part of the job, he’s fairly well trained on some of it.”

Dubé will take courses to bring him up to speed on fire prevention.

Britton says announcements are forthcoming on who will replace Dubé in the bylaw department, and a new municipal CAO.
