Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District Board Chair Kristie Miller announced Friday, April 5, that Tony Prior has completed all pre-employment requirements and the parties have completed contract negotiations. Chief Prior’s start date is scheduled for June 1. He will succeed current Fire Chief Roger Johnson, who is retiring on July 1.

Chief Prior comes to the District with 29 years’ experience in the fire service working his way through the ranks. He has served as a firefighter, engineer, captain, battalion chief/training and safety officer, deputy chief, and for the last four years as the fire chief for the Kenai Fire Department in Alaska. He also has experience as an adjunct instructor of emergency response topics for the University of Alaska for the past seven years.

Chief Prior said, “We would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome to Sisters. We are very excited to share our new adventure in life with your community and we look forward to the opportunities there. It was obvious to us that Sisters is a special place to work, play, and live, and we can’t wait to enjoy all of it. We are leaving an amazing state with close friends and family, but we are looking forward to the visits and sharing our new home with our Alaskan friends.”
