CARROT RIVER, SASKATCHEWAN – Bud Charko, Reeve of the Rural Municipality of Moose Range #486 and Bob Gagne, Mayor of the Town of Carrot River are making a brief statement regarding Carrot River Fire and Rescue.

The Rural Municipality of Moose Range #486 and the Town of Carrot River wishes to announce that, after an extensive search wherein 13 applications were received from well qualified individuals and 4 outstanding candidates were shortlisted and interviewed, an offer of employment has been made and accepted for the position of Permanent Chief of Carrot River Fire and Rescue.

We are pleased to announce that joining our team on August 27, 2018 will be Mr. Bryce Lytle.

Bryce comes to us from Vermilion Fire and Rescue where he trained under reputable Chief Bill Roth. During his time as a member in Vermilion, Bryce experienced call volumes and varieties in both fire and rescue that will put him in good stead with our department. Bryce was an integral part of Vermilion’s response team to Fort McMurray’s emergency back in 2016. Bryce’s training and skills are not limited to only Fire and Rescue, as he recently graduated from the EMT Program from the University of Lethbridge.

Bryce was attracted to the position with Carrot River Fire and Rescue, in part, because of the area, as he is an avid fisherman, camper and hunter as well as a classic car enthusiast. Bryce and his fiancé, Alexandria plan to relocate to Carrot River. Bryce plans to take up residence here just prior to his position start date and Alexandria will come a little later as she is completing her Degree in Psychology from Red Deer College this winter.

Bryce will be starting in late August as his teaching contract with Lakeland College will wrap up at that time. Until this time, Interim Chief Dylan Borody will retain command of Carrot River Fire and Rescue.
