Melfort will soon need a new fire chief.

Paul See announced that he is resigning from the lone paid position on the department during Monday's council meeting. See took the position in May after serving as chief of the Waskesiu Fire Department. See said he enjoyed his time in Melfort, but family is drawing him back to Prince Albert.

“I enjoyed my time in Melfort,” See told northeastNOW. “I’m quite proud of the team we have here and the changes we’ve made with improved safety, equipment, and training.”

The department has heavily upgraded their equipment during See's time as fire chief. The department purchased new lights for their trucks, new suits for their members, and upgraded decals on the fleet. See said the hiring of Amanda Boland as the first female firefighter on the force was another highlight of his time as chief.

See officially leaves the post June 1, and will work with city administration in hiring his replacement.
