Gerritson Is Final Candidate For Fire Chief

And then there was one.

Fond du Lac City Attorney Deborah Hoffmann announced Friday (6/10/2022) that Interim Fond du Lac Fire Rescue Fire Chief, Erick Gerritson, is the lone finalist to become the next Fire Chief.

The City of Fond du Lac Police & Fire Commission has actively been involved in the recruitment of a new City of Fond du Lac Fire Chief since April 28, following the retirement of former Fire Chief Peter O’Leary.

The Police & Fire Commission made the decision to utilize the City Human Resources team to conduct the search and facilitate the recruitment process.  

The process provided nine (9) candidates throughout the United States and Canada that submitted applications for the position.  

At their meeting on June 9, 2022, the Police & Fire Commission reviewed the applicant pool and determined one qualified candidate would be placed on the Finalist List. The PFC will conduct an interview on June 14th with Gerritson.

The public now has a chance to provide feedback based on the video interview provided by finalist Erick Gerritson.
