"We wanted to do something to show our love and support for Shaylee."
- Angie Marra  


The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass announced last week the hiring of former City of Regina Deputy Chief of Public Safety Planning and Prevention, Albert Headrick, as the new Director of Protective and Community Services.
Headrick - who replaces Ken Brands of All Fire Investigations Inc., who filled the position on an interim basis from December 5th to March 23rd - has over 30 years experience in fire and protective services.
Headrick has served as the city’s Deputy Chief of Public Safety Planning and Prevention / Fire Marshal for the past two years, having served as Fire Chief in Yellowknife for two years and Deputy Fire Chief in Swift Current, Saskatchewan for three years before that.
“His distinguished track record for performance and leadership both in municipal operations and fire disciplines will be an asset to the future of our Community,” stated a Municipal press release which was released last Wednesday, March 28th.
Headrick spent the first 12 years of his career as a volunteer fire fighter, moving up through the ranks and other positions in composite departments (both full-time and part-time staff) before working in a full-time capacity with Regina Fire and Rescue Services.
Headrick has worked in almost every position within the fire service, serving as Fire Captain, Training Officer, Deputy Fire Chief, Fire Chief, and eventually Fire Marshal.

“I have a lot to offer in regard to my background, not only in fire but in other municipal fields as well,” Headrick told the Pass Herald last week.
“There are a lot of challenges facing the Crowsnest Pass at present and I feel I can contribute to the successful outcomes of the community.”
Headrick said he looks forward to joining the Municipality’s administrative team and plans to remain in the community indefinitely.
“Crowsnest Pass is a proactive community with a great municipal organization that I want to be part of and involved with,” he said.
“The Municipality has a great vision and mission for the growth and prosperity of the community, as well as a sound mission statement.”
He said the community itself adds to the draw to come onboard.
“Crowsnest Pass is a gorgeous area with a great, friendly atmosphere,” he said.
“I’m really looking forward to it.”
Headrick will commence his duties with the Municipality next Tuesday, April 10th and will be responsible for recruiting the Manager of Protective and Community Services / Fire Chief.
