Ward Six Chief Gilland retires

Submitted By Teri Parked

A retirement party was held on Friday, May 11, for Ward Six Fire Protection Fire Chief Tim Gilland.

There were 70 people in attendance, including Ward Six Fire Board members, former and current Firefighters from Ward Six Fire Protection, Fire Chiefs and Firefighters from surrounding departments and numerous other close friends of Chief Gilland.

Assistant Chief Shane Frazier and the other Ward Six Officers presented Gilland with a retirement plaque, which was purchased by all of the Ward Six Firefighters. A framed photo memory board and a framed poster, signed by all Ward Six Firefighters, was also given to Gilland.

Gilland stated after the party, “It was an evening of happiness and sadness, yet one with grand visions of the future. I did not expect such a wonderful retirement party and I am humbled by such an outpouring of love. I can never thank all of you enough for tonight or for what you all have done for me and meant to me. Thank you for everything and most of all, thank you for giving of your time to come to the party. I love you all and will miss being a part of such a great group.”

Chief Gilland joined the department in 1989 and was ap- pointed as District Fire Chief in 2000. He will be moving to his home state of Wyoming in the near future.
