New Fire Chief Sworn In

Promoted. And Pinned.

Wednesday (6/29/2022) was an exciting day for former Interim Fire Chief Erick Gerritson, as he stood proudly in front of family and friends, and was officially sworn in as the new Fire Chief for the City of Fond du Lac.

Gerritson takes over the position following the retirement of Peter O’Leary, after the City of Fond du Lac Police and Fire Commission selected Gerritson as the next Fire Chief back on June 14..

Nine (9) candidates throughout the United States and Canada submitted application materials for the position.  The PFC requested the input of the public thru two online surveys during the course of the recruitment and viewed those results prior to the final interview.

Gerritson was the lone finalist for the position, and has been with the department for 20 years.
