SPOKANE VALLEY FIRE WELCOMES NEW FIRE COMMISSIONER

BRIAN ASMUS JOINS SVFD BOARD JULY 1

**********************************************

Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD) Board of Fire Commissioner, Chair Mike Pearson resigned as an SVFD Fire Board member effective June 30.  Commissioner Pearson moved outside the Spokane Valley Fire District to be closer to family. Former Liberty Lake Police Chief and current Director of Safety and Security at Central Valley School District (CVSD), Brian Asmus has been appointed in his place until the next election cycle.

Asmus

“Brian Asmus brings extensive Public Safety leadership experience, and a long history of being actively engaged in his community to his new role as a SVFD Commissioner,” said SVFD Fire Chief, Bryan Collins. “During his time as a Police Chief, Brian interacted with SVFD firefighters and administrators on a regular basis, making him very familiar with our structure, standing within our communities, as well as with many of our current SVFD board members and personnel. Brian’s experience working and collaborating on regional issues aligns nicely with SVFD’s philosophy and will help us continue to be a catalyst for local and regional excellence and innovation.”

Newly appointed Commissioner Asmus will begin on July 1, 2021.
