Description

Steve Dongworth joined the Calgary Fire Department in 1992 and was promoted to Deputy Chief in 2000. On January 1, 2015, The City of Calgary announced Dongworth as Calgary’s new Fire Chief.

Previously, Dongworth was the Deputy Chief of Community Standards, Recruitment and Training, overseeing the Calgary Fire Department’s Inspection & Investigation sections, Fire Investigators, the Accelerant Detection Canine program and the Fire Cadet program.

Prior to this, Dongworth served in a variety of Deputy Chief commands including Operations, Training, Community Services, Administration and Emergency Management. He has led a wide variety of projects from the development of false alarm fees to the creation of the Community Safety section.

Between 2009 and 2014, Dongworth completed two separate terms as Commander of Calgary 9-1-1. During his time as Commander he worked to provide better services to citizens through a number of initiatives such as a new call evaluation process and becoming one of the first nation-wide safety centres to institute text with 9-1-1.

In recognition for his exemplary work, Dongworth has been awarded The City of Calgary Protective Services Medal, the Alberta Emergency Services Medal, the Slave Lake Medal and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. He also has been awarded the Chief Fire Officer designation by the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs.
