When Westminster Fireplace Chief Doug Corridor first picked up a hose within the metropolis in 1978, the suburb had solely 50,000 residents.
With Westminster’s inhabitants greater than doubling since then, Corridor — chief of the drive for the previous decade — will name it quits this summer time.
“The chance to steer the best hearth division within the nation was a job of a lifetime, however it isn’t meant to be a job for a lifetime,” Corridor stated. “I’m honored and proud to serve the neighborhood that I’ve referred to as house for over 4 many years.”
Corridor’s precise retirement date is ready for July 3. Beneath his management, the Westminster Fireplace Division earned an ISO Class 1 ranking — the Heart for Public Security Excellence’s highest accreditation — a ranking given to fewer than 300 companies nationwide.
Corridor served in management positions for the Adams and Jefferson County Hazardous Supplies Response Authority over the past two years and he represents Colorado cities as a member of the Colorado Fireplace Fee. Since he started his firefighting profession in Westminster, the division’s headcount has grown from 18 firefighters and one staffed station to 143 staff and 6 staffed stations.
